Anyway, I've been playing An English Ladymass, by Anonymous Four (very
angelic-sounding 14th Century Latin Mass)(acapella), and it calms the kids
right down. I've also been playing Songs of Sanctuary, by Adiemus, which I
discovered in the background of Delta Airlines radio spots. I e-mailed Delta,
and they sent me the name of the album. The kids LOVE it, and beg me to put
it on. Today the toughest kid in the class asked me where he could buy it.
The music has a kind of choral, world-music sound, although all of the "words"
are simply created by the authors. I've also followed someone's lead on this
list and tried some Carlos Nakai music - very nice Native American flute.
Back on the list after a short hiatus,
