    Mike, my sentiments entirely!! Thanks. I think that this is an extrapolation of my 'melodic music' preferences.

    Well I agree with what you have written.
    Bruckner’s orchestration is very thick in texture IMO compared to say Mozart or even Beethoven please don’t get me wrong I have quite a few Bruckner CD’s and as you pointed out he can do short tunes as per Motets which I adore.

    This does not mean I'm against all contemporary work, for example I enjoy Priesners "Requiem for my friend", particularly the Lascrimosa.
    One quote attributed to Mozart was that music should never offend the Ear (or simular) but as music is so very subjective is not a quote that applies to future generations, I personally like minimalism as in Satie’s Gymnopedies
    and of course some Arvo Part works just to name a couple
    I don’t want a signature any more
