Agnus Dei (Adagio for Strings, Op 11) Acapella It’s been a while since I’ve thrown a new song at you guys. It isn’t generally what I do here – movies being more my dish – but I also dig amazing music. And as this is my rodeo, and I can do whatever I want here… and I do… I figured I’d share with you this amazing acapella piece by Matthew Curtis of Samuel Barber’s Agnus Dei – which is more commonly known as the Adagio for Strings. I remember the first time I watched Platoon and heard the Adagio playing in the background of one of the most intense death battle scenes I have ever scene. (If you’d like to remember the details of said chaos, here ya go.) Anyway, this Matthew Curtis guy? Amazing. Just amazing. I listen to him nailing these various parts and I want to know how. I’ve got this guy on loop and I have single handedly upped his view count by an order of magnitude. Anwyay, I dig this guy. He’s killing it. Tell him I sent you. Until next time. 2 Responses Aaron May 15, 2017 I sang this arrangement in high school with a select choir, and it always gave me chills. Reply Taylor Holmes May 15, 2017 Seriously? I didn’t even know it was a thing thing. Sweet! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
