"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

so maybe i have a thing for gustav

If heaven does not sound like the last fifteen or so minutes of Mahler 2, I'm going to be disappointed. It doesn't get much better than this piece of music. Seriously, it is awe-inspiring.

So, here's the last eight minutes.
It is breathtaking.

Though, you should really look up the symphony and listen to the whole thing.

I haven't spent much time listening to Mahler. I may have to devote a little time to it.
