I have started this post for a place to put suggestions for the event on Sunday.
The theme will be romance/love and it has been requested the music be classical. (The attempt here is to make it as elvish sounding as possible)
As I am not good with most classical music names of songs, I am asking for any help I can get. Please post your suggestions here and keep in mind I have only today to finish this list. I appreciate any and all help :)

It's not classical in the Beethoven/Mozart sense, but I think a classic love song is Moon River. Just sayin'

Legend of Legaia

This has a nice sound to it for setting the mood. I haven't found been given the file Berenras wanted me to listen to. Then there is also this Lay of Beren and Luthien

If I can see any others that might be good to give a go I'll post again.


Adding another player to the list:

Lenwen - Plays all instruments

Okay. Here is what I will need for today. This is info I will need for the post. Time, location, how long it will last, name of event if any. I will post the list of volunteers along with the song post as is standard with EMS concerts. I do need to know what instruments the volunteers can play. It is of upmost importance I know this tonight as it will determine which songs we can actually play. I will be going over songs tonight so if you need me, pm me here on site and I will log on.

Players from SoNs:

Tessariel - Plays all instruments
Alidil - Clarinet, Drums, Lute, Harp, Horn, Theorbo
Berenras - Almost all instruments
Aadyn - Plays all instruments
Daylak - Plays all but cowbell
Lenwen - Plays all instruments

Players from EMS:

Fincin - Plays all instruments
Orladan - Plays all instruments
Randolfr - I assume plays all instruments.

I'll edit what Berenras can play once I get a chance to talk to him. He hasn't been on all day.

We're looking at 30 minutes of Elvish like music. Just something to set the mood while Benjimir recites the Lay of Beren and Luthien.

The Lay of Beren and Luthien is a must.
Suteki Da Ne though I am tempted to say rather than lute go to harp and make the clarinets horns but I don't want to get smacked by Randolfr.
Andante
Hallelujah
Sonata No.2 in Eb majorAllegro moderato
The Fall of Gil-Galad

That should cover the 30 minutes no?

Ah Fincin, I was going to suggest Suteki Da Ne by Nobuo Uematsu as well (I started looking in the 6 part section), and had just come across Hallelujah :D

One other I thought of, which is 8 parts, is Venus from the Planets Suite by Gustav Holst

Yep. That will make for about 1/2 an hour. Let me know if that is what you want to run with and I will make a post for it by afternoon Sunday. That will give everyone enough time to download songs and such.

Nice suggestion there :) I like it though I wonder if it would be a wise choice considering it's a long piece. I would say that is a nice alternate should there be some dead space for some reason. Do you think that is a good idea Finny?

Other than that run with the choices I selected. Berenras hasn't been on so I'm making an executive decision. Benjimir doesn't care as long as it suits the mood.
