One of my favorite pieces of all times...

Sam Cardon and Kurt Bestor are heavy weights in movie, documentary scoring and commercial production.  They are also great composers in their own rights:

Nice music. I don't think the freemasons deserved it though.

Beautiful music, indeed. One of my favorite types of recordings is that of a chorus and specifically recorded in a church or cathedral. There is nothing like hearing the chorus and orchestra as a whole and then being able to make out the individual voices and instruments and reproduced in a holographic manner.

Interesting tidbit on Cardon and Bestor.  Students at BYU during the time Word Perfect was being developed, they were friends of the developers.  The original recording "Innovators" was placed on the WP6 (1993) data distribution disc as kind of a lark.  This is where I first found their music.  I probably have it around here somewhere.  The recording engineer on that disc is credited as David Wilson.  Yeah.  Him.

Playing the data track through a stereo was a terrifying foray into: What the hell is that??!!?!

Go figure.
