Start the Year Right

I spent much of my free time this week listening to Beethoven’s Choral Fantasia, which I've never heard before.  It’s magnificent.  Breathtaking.  Exhilarating.  All those big words.  Every now and then I come across a piece of music - usually by Beethoven - which reminds me that all the other music I’ve ever heard in my life is total crap.  This is such a piece.  Give it a listen.  It will set you right with the world.  (If you’re pressed for time, go to minute 15:00 in the video below for the choral section.)
