Today I was listening to Carl Orff's Carmina Burana.  You'll recognize the first two minutes as the super-dramatic music that shows up frequently in movie trailers.  Anyway, I sang in a children's choir as part of a performance of the full work.  Modern, accessible, dynamic rhythms, and choral singing -- to this day, anything with that musical profile sends me soaring.

What's the music that shaped your taste?  Have the years changed how you experience this music?
