Default Classical Music

Wow, I do believe this is my first topic...also, on Classical Music. Believe me, I never saw this coming.
Anyways. I've recently gotten into Classical (though not off the Japanese yet) and I remembered that in a few Voyager episodes, Seven was playing the piano. So, does anyone know the song and composer she was playing in that episode with the holographic Chakotay? It's been haunting me. I have no idea what it's called.
Also, if anyone has any recommendations for songs, that'd be nice too.

(There was also another song, but I don't know whether it was on Voyager at any point or not. I don't remember where I heard it either. Actually, two others. One sort of started soft and deep and got stronger and a bit higher, and the other sounded a little light at the beginning and got deeper...I can't describe them any better than that. And no, neither one is Moonlight Sonata...I have that one already...)

This is utterly, utterly freaky. I just decided (Yesterday) to start listening to some classical music. I've been downloading it today and yesterday. I know very little about it too. Except they have very long names. And lots of the music is in either
A- Cartoons
B- TV Adverts, i.e. that 'Hovis' advert
C- Movies, i.e 'The Omen' song

Funny that.
One song I found that's good is 'Canon and Gigue for 3 Violins and Basso Continuo in D major' (Sorry, I'm guessing thats it's name) by Johann Pachelbel.
You'll know it when you hear it. Nice song.
But I would like to hear any recommendations anyone has for songs too.
There is one song I REALLY wanna hear, but since it has no words, and I have no idea of it's title or who it was by, I'm kinda screwed. It was on 'Topgear' ( One where they drove up a mountain in a 4x4) if any watches that....? My mother thinks it's some song they sing at schools, or that it's got the words England the Great/Green in it. I think might be some sort of patriotic 'Englandy' type song.
Ideas?

Well, first off, I sugest the composer George Gershwin. He was an interesting sort who wrote, among other things, pieces combining jazz and classical and a fill-in-the-blanks love song.

You're thinking Canon in D, though you were very close Burt. And I personally LOVE that piece.

Check out the obvious ones like Mozart and Beethoven. I'll need to delve into my collections (I haven't listened to them in a while, but I have a decent amount), but I know I like Mozart's horn concertos and another personal favorite is the 1812 Overture.

I don't know about "Top Gear", but I think you might mean the song "Jerusalem":

Quote:
And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the Holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Amongst these dark satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of Fire.
I will not cease from mental fight
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.

Words: William Blake
Music: Hubert Parry
Python fans will recognize this; it's also been done by Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Billy Bragg, among others -- it even turned up in a DS9 episode, "Explorers", sung by a completely-sloshed Bashir and O'Brien. :mrgreen:

It isn't I'm afraid. I did find this song (Jerusalem) the other night looking for the other one.
It is very like the song I want, the main tune, except...it sort of goes up higher in pitch instead of down.

I'm so stupid. I do know the song. I found it. It's called 'I Vow to Thee, My Country', but it might be better known as 'The Planets' by Gustav Holst - it's a section of the Jupiter song. I'm stupid because, I own the CD.
The whole thing is really great, I'd suggest listening to it. But the Jupiter/'I Vow to Thee, My Country' part is really rather special.

I'm quite partial to Mars, Bringer of War, but that's mostly to do with the fact that it features the trombone section quite prominently.

My friend, the trumpet player, was rather irked that we always played Mars and not Jupiter in band class. The director was a euphonium player.

I also like the Bach fugues we played - D and G Minors. JSB was clearly of the "more is better" school of thought when it came to notes.
