Holy Minimalism
Just thought I'd share a "genre" of modern classical music that I find to be quite moving. I'll post kind of an introductory video and then some of my favorites. Holy minimalism tends to embrace simplicity whereas a lot of 20th and 21st century composers tend to try to push boundaries with odd sounds and music, I find. This music is easy to enjoy whether you're religious or not.

Interesting stuff. I had heard Górecki's Symphony no. 3 before (and was stunned the first time I heard that second movement) but nothing of Tavener, Pärt, or the whole school of thought behind their work 'til now. Thanks for posting all this.
