What are your favorites?
I love Jon Schmidt's music. All of Me is probably my favorite song of his. If I could play the piano, I'd want to learn that song. :D
I also heard a sample of an album called Crossing the Stone by Kevin Horsley, which I thought was really good. :D

Er...since no one's posted here in a while, I think the double post will be ok. :whistle:
I found these on youtube and loved them.
The first is by Jon Schmidt and the second by Lara St John

What about classical singers? I've recently become a massive fan of Hayley Westenra, and brought her album Pure on Amazon for £0.09 (well, £1.33 with shipping - but still: bargain). I'm actually listening to it right now (it arrived today - I love it!). I first came across her at the beginning of this week when I walked into the kitchen, the radio was on and I heard a few notes of Amazing Grace, which I love, then the singing started and I thought it was gorgeous so I listened avidly for the name then youtubed her.
Apart from Amazing Grace, I've also found her singing "May It Be" from the Lord of the Rings, which I adore.
In terms of classical music, I love Karl Jenkin's Adiemus:
And this variation of Pachelbel's Canon:

Oh my goodness, I've just seen a trailer of Will Martin's new CD (I only heard of him this morning, because my Grandpa brought round a classical CD because it had Hayley Westenra on it and he knew I liked her music). His new CD (A New World) has "Into the West" from The Lord of the Rings on it! I love that song so much, but don't like the voices I've heard singing it (Annie Lennox and Helen Hobson) so I'm very excited about that.
I can't believe it's going to be relesed two days after my birthday.
Any way, here's the promo video:
Thank you New Zealand for Hayley Westenra and Will Martin!

Do you know "Libera"? They sing English-Latin mixed songs and it sounds like the music from angels.
