These are the 10 songs Virginia and Dr. Fred Goodwin of Cape Girardeau wouldn't want to live without.

1. "Magnificat" -- John Rutter

Joyous choral music featuring gorgeous melodies.

2. "Death and Transfiguration -- Ricard Strauss

A touching piece depicting life's sorrows and joys.3. "Waltz" -- Ravel

Sheer beauty of movement.

4. "America the Beautiful" -- Carmen Dragon (arranger)

A simple piece made beautiful by a great arrangement. It stirs everybody.5. "How Long Has This Been Going On?" -- Ella Fitzgerald

Ella in a mellow mood singing this poignant standard of George and Ira Gershwin.6. "Time After Time" -- Stan Kenton (arranger)

Kenton's lush arrangement of this classic Jules Styne and Sammy Cahn standard tune.7. "Adagio for Strings" ---Samuel Barber

Listen to it one time and you'll see why we chose this one.8. "Angel Eyes" -- Frank Sinatra

Sinatra at his best in this beautiful ballad.9. "Skylark" -- Hoagy Carmichael

This lovely melody is performed by Singers Unlimited in an imaginative arrangement by Gene Puerling.10. "Silent Night"

Listen to this treatment of the old favorite by Manheim Steamroller and you'll feel the real Christmas spirit.
