3 ~~~ The world for classical music lovers: 10 pieces to take you away ~~~
From the Danube to the Nile, music can transport you all over the planet
As the Austrian Airlines Airbus enters its final descent into Vienna International Airport, the public address system bursts into life, filling the plane with the strains of Strauss’s Blue Danube waltz. Immediately I think of the golden interior of the Musikverein concert hall, glittering chandeliers, a hundred couples waltzing in perfect synchronicity.
Czech Airlines uses a movement from Smetana’s Ma Vlast depicting the fast-flowing River Vltava passing under the ancient Charles Bridge as its landing music. Historically, the American carrier United utilised Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue when on approach to New York; several Gulf airlines have commissioned contemporary works featuring ouds, neys and other Arab instruments to welcome passengers to their final destination.

Lyrics: Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Even though the sound of it Is something quite atrocious If you say it loud enough You'll always sound precocious Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay Because I was afraid to speak When I was just a lad My father gave me nose a tweak And told me I was bad But then one day I learned a word That saved me aching nose The biggest word I ever heard And this is how it goes: Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Even though the sound of it Is something quite atrocious If you say it loud enough You'll always sound precocious Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay So when the cat has got your tongue There's no need for dismay Just summon up this word And then you've got a lot to say But better use it carefully Or it may change your life One night I said it to me girl And now me girl's my wife! She's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

On the banks of the Missouri River, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square present "Amazing Grace" arranged by Mack Wilberg.
Lyrics: Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see.
The Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures; He will my shield and portion be, As long as life endures.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail, And mortal life shall cease, I shall possess, within the veil, A life of joy and peace.
When we've been there ten thousand years, Bright shining as the sun, We've no less days to sing God's praise Than when we first begun. We've no less days to sing God's praise Than when we first begun, begun, begun, begun, begun, begun.

The King's Singers join the men of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square in performing "O Holy Night," by Adolph Charles Adam and arranged by Mack Wilberg.
Lyrics: O holy night, night divine, O night holy night, O night divine!
O holy night! The stars are brightly shining. It is the night of the dear Savior's birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining, 'Till He appeared and the soul felt it's worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees! O, hear angel voices! O night, divine, O night When Christ was born! O night, O holy night, o night divine!
Truly He taught us to love one another, His law is love and His gospel is peace; Chains shall he break for the slave is our brother, And in His name all oppression shall cease. Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, Let all within us praise His holy name; O Christ is the Lord! O praise His name forever. His pow'r and glory ever more proclaim! His pow'r and glory ever more proclaim! O Christ, the Lord! Praise His name forever. His pow'r and glory ever more, ever more proclaim, His pow'r and glory ever more proclaim!

Lyrics: And now, the end is near And so I face the final curtain My friend, I'll say it clear I'll state my case, of which I'm certain I've lived a life that's full I've traveled each and every highway Oh, and more, much more than this I did it my way Regrets, I've had a few But then again, too few to mention I did what I had to do And saw it through without exemption I planned each charted course Each careful step along the byway But more, much more than this I did it my way Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew When I bit off more than I could chew But through it all, when there was doubt I ate it up and spit it out I faced it all and I stood tall And did it my way I've loved, I've laughed and cried Had my fill, my share of losing And now, as tears subside I find it all so amusing To think I did all that And may I say, not in a shy way "Oh no, oh no not me I did it my way" For what is a man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has naught To say the things he truly feels And not the words of one who kneels The record shows I took the blows And did it my way The record shows I took the blows And did it my way
