I am looking for some classical guitar music to play or listen to that is therapeutic/meditative. recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Whiteagle, I know you requested guitar music, but if you are looking for "Real Music" (sorry...I couldn't resist!!!) for relaxation, maybe try Renaissance a capella Vocal Music, some Masses by Palestrina, perhaps? Or Josquin (my personal favorite) or Victoria? or Ockeghem?
To our modern ears, the textures and timbres are non-threatening, the harmonies sound uniformly consonant to our ears, the pulse is less obvious, and the cadences and tension control are not what most 21st century folks are familiar with. Unless you speak Latin, the lyrics won't be a distraction, either!
The Tallis Scholars have a lot of excellent recordings.
Hi, thanks for these suggestions and I will check them out but I am looking for classical guitar music that I can play.
