Some music is incredible, but doesn’t hit my heart. HeartMusic™ is the stuff I love the best. I’m not sure how much of it my heart can handle, but so far I continue to listen and the heart still pounds on. Some HeartMusic™ is from the classical tradition. Most, really. Some is pop, but that is pretty rare, and the music I considered HeartMusic™ when I was a kid doesn’t quite hit me the same way any longer. Other HeartMusic; is from other traditions. Folk music is definitely something that can hit me. And certain instrument combinations as well. Listen to this YouTube video and see if it makes you tear up. It did that to me. I’m going to guess it hits some of you, but probably not all. My only disappointment was the applause at the end … funny how I just want silence …..

So what is your HeartMusic™


  1. I don’t really like the singin in here, but I do love the Hardanger violin! Such a beautiful instrument. Oh, and the language makes it better, too. I guess it’s Norwegian, but it could also be Danish, I don’t know but it sounds pretty.

  2. Sorry you don’t like the singing, Eefje. I love it.

  3. I’m not really all for singing, I don’t really like choirs either. I don’t know what it is, it
    s just not something I like I think. Though when I listen to non-classical music (which is usually folk, folkmetal or symphonic metal) I do like the singing in it.

  4. Wow, the human voice is my favorite of anything. I can’t imagine not liking it! We oboists often aspire to sing like the voice!
