Just listened to Mozart's Requiem on BBC2. A lockdown performance in the Coliseum by English National Opera: socially distanced chorus and orchestra, perspex screens, no audience. But possibly the best performance of this I have ever heard.

Probably the lack of coughing between movements. :lol:

Lots of requiems have movements. eg K.626.

Is Skitt's Law in play with penalties?

Ok. Caught! And apologies to PWA.
I don't think of the sections as movements although the piece is divided up into sections. But I was wrong

:lol:
Putting to one side the question of "movements", I have always been a bit sensitive to audience members who make noises during performances, so the absence of audience sounds on a piece of classical music would be a plus for me.

It is very different for, say, a rock performance where the participation of the audience is a big part of it. Just to show my split personality, I love this little clip of the Stones at Glastonbury. I have never been a big Stones fan but I love the football crowd nature of the audience and the fact that what you are listening to is mostly the crowd having a great time. It puts a smile on my face. Start at about 2.40 and let it run for a minute.

The Disintegration Loops - love them or loath them, they're probably the most minimalist, repetative audio recordings, issued as discrete pieces, that I have heard. If you want to hear what "decay" sounds like, here's your chance...not going to have trouble sleeping, now that I have them ;-)

Santana, from 2005 All That I Am. Up-beat pop rock, with the man's trademark classy guitar licks... he don't stay still... :-)

Just finished watching Kate Rusby 2020 Xmas concert. So good to see live music again and in the comfort of your home I didn’t have to miss the last song to get the train home. :lol:
Celtic Connections on Alba now.

I'm currently listening to Finnish commercial radio. It's incidental music when I'm coding and when I want to relax I can try and improve my Finnish by listening to the adverts. One day I'll get good enough to understand the disclaimers at the in real time/
