A soothing song, combined with a little quiet of classical music. That is what I like.

The Andante Cantabile from Tchaicovsky's 1st string quartet.

Solveig's song. From the Peer Gynt suite by Edvard Grieg.

The Pearl Fishers sung by Jonas Kaufmann and Dmitri Hvorostovsky---pleasant to watch on youtube as well. Two powerful voices in harmony.
Sadly, the Russian Hvorostovsky died suddenly 2 years ago.

I have a few favourites but my all-time fav is Clair de Lune.

Another vote for Clair de lune. So soothing and just beautiful.

I've just seen/listened to this. I thought it was wonderful, this piece of music always lifts my heart.

I've a few but a great favourite is the Baillero from Joseph Canteloube's Songs of the Auvergne. Whenever I hear it on the radio I pause and put the volume up.

Hope this link works. It’s Faure’s Ad verum. I love the way the two voices intermingle.
Thanks for the other links just beautiful and very mood uplifting

I have so many favourites - including Minimoon's Solveig's song.
Classic - Nocturne from Borodin's 2nd quartet
Modern - Sydney Bechet - Si tu vois ma mere.

The Jupiter Suite from the Planets.

I love that as well

However, I shall own up to loving a piece of music that isn't remotely cultured or high brow

Theme from a Summer Place

I’m rather partial to Cardi B’s wonderful and inspiring WAP....

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. If you don’t know it, please don’t google it. grin

Vaughan Williams for me. My favourites are the Norfolk Rhapsodies.

Clare de lune and not classical but my comfort blanket -

The Andante Cantabile from Tchaikovsky's String Quartet no 1. Sublimely calming.

I see I have already mentioned this back in June!
