Music of the Day: 14/04/13

For today’s selection of pieces I decided to change focus a bit, so I’ve avoided the nineteenth and twentieth centuries completely and gone for two tracks from the twenty-first century, and one each from the eighteenth, seventeenth, and sixteenth centuries.

Orchestral: Franz Joseph Haydn, Symphony No. 104 in D major, ‘London’ – eighteenth century, Haydn’s last symphony.

Chamber: Arcangelo Corelli, Sonata a 3 in D minor, Op. 3 No. 2 – seventeenth century, great last movement.

Vocal: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Missa Papae Marcelli – sixteenth century.

Jazz: Soweto Kinch, Doxology – twenty-first century. Great playing, and a Hertford alumnus as well, so good all round.

Rock/Pop/?: One Direction, One Thing – twenty-first century. I like a bit of pop nothingness every now and then, and the catchiness of the songwriting is to be applauded really – I had the chorus of this stuck in my head for hours a few days ago.
