    Was listening to an old recording of "Triumphant Rhapsody" in the car and in the
    Gerwin-esque slow part a certain chord "did it for me" ! ;)

    Got me thinking about other pieces that I have heard or played which have a trigger point for the shudders and raising the hairs on the back of the neck.........

    "Music" - after all the raucous stuff when it slows down to the "believes in me" bit........ooooh.

    "Cortege" from Pageantry - again, after the build up...that high note does it every time!!!

    Even Tam o Shanter has a moment ....... which could have been embarrasing on the contest stage!

    So, what pieces hit your spot???

    Resurgam for me: :tup the first opening chords and the molto rit bar before 25.

    'I shall rise again'

    Year of the dragon- The Middle movement after the opening Trom solo, the really quiet band section...then comes the huge crescendo and the few bars at the height of the crescendo! Fantastic.

    The ending quick bit of Music of the Spheres also 'does it for me' ;)

    The ending of Prague also makes me shudder too... :rolleyes:

    A good sop solo does it for me.
    The build up to the end of Philip Sparkes' Flowerdale on Peter Roberts Legend CD is a favourite.

    Two Sparkey bits spring to mind.

    The slow section of Music for a Festival, and the third movement of The Four Noble Truths.

    Also, Elaine from Tintagel. If the Solo Trombone player nails the top Bb then applies the tenuto over the subsequent A and G in a rubato kinda way, the effect is spell binding.

    In slow movements, any chord with the 6th in the bass is kinda lovely......

    EG: C major with A in bass.... F major with D in bass.... B major with G in bass.... etc. Have the right chord progression and this is such a hair standing moment.... I've used it in my latest composition come to mention it ;-) :lol:

    There's a moment in another piece that Goff Richards arranged and it really is something... several others as well....

    The choral in Ginnungagap... seeming emptiness , especially when it returns near the end of the piece...
    Those of you who haven't heard it yet, just wait until the Europeans. (hopefully it will make the highlights CD...)

    Timbone has just got back in from rehearsing "Fiddler on the Roof" (as MD) and he says to tell you that there is nothing at all in that which does it for him!

    ( The Cossack dancers would probably do it for me though!;) )

    However, the chord change between the 6th and 7th bars from the end of "Crimond" (Goff's)
    always makes him well up............................

    :)eek: Well up for what???)

    Message to Hubby...if you don't like the little additions your own comments!!!!!:biggrin:

    Totally agree with that! Mmmmmm!!

    Also love Mattheson's Air by Gilbert Vinter!!

    In our recording of Diamond Heritage by Darrol Barry from Harrogate, there are quite a few bits as well, especially from the sop!

    Resurgam's opening bars as well - yup, good choice.

    Hymn To The Fallen by John Williams - all of it!!

    Reflections In Nature by Redhead

    & the ending of Chorale from Mahler's symphony no 3 as performed by us!!!!!

    For me the ending of Resurgam is pretty special y'know the big crescendo and then just dying away to the end...

    In fact a lot of Eric Ball's stuff has great "moments" in it - the "dawn" at the end of Journey Into Freedom up to the recapitulation (wow what a word!!) of the slow section where the piece just opens out - that does it for me everytime.

    The Interlude from Year of the Dragon too - great stuff.

    Laudate Dominum (Gregson)

    Letter M and each time that phrase ends.

    Letter P - I think it's the bass parts.

    Oh & Deep Harmony Roy Newsome's arrangement. Fabulous. [sigh]
