Strange thing that!
When I lived in England, I was a member of the church choir. We sang at weddings ; sometimes 3 or 4 per weekend. For that reason I hate the Mendelssohn Wedding March
Same with Tchaikowsky - the 1812 Overture, Swan Lake, the Piano Concerto - yuk! Over-exposure.
Now if you want to try something exciting, listen to Beethoven's String Quartets. Especially the Razumowski.
Or tune in to some John Dowland Lute Music. You'll never need another Valium after listening to that!
Or, for a real treat, listen to a Thomas Tallis motet called " Spem in Alium
" . It was written in the 16th century for 40 voices; quite an achievement then. It brings tears to my eyes, such is its beauty!
