Best classical music. EVER!!

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Bernard Herrmann was one of the best classical composers of the 20th century, regardless of your emotions. :)
     
  2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjA5faZF1A8

    To me this is one the best versions of Pachelbel's Canon ever. Not bad considering the guy playing was 13 when he made this (apparently).

    Edited to add: I'm not a total heathen and I do like the more traditional arrangements but this kid is awesome.
     
  3. Damm beat me to it. :(
