This recording introduces classical music to the entire family. It looks at the music through the lives of the great composers and their environment from the churches and cathedrals that produced the familiar sound of Gregorian chant, to Johann Sebastian Bach and right up to the film music for "Gladiator" and "Lord of the Rings." The CD-ROM features extra information and pictures about the composers, the instruments of the classical orchestra, national anthems and flags, scores, the text of the CDs, musical terms, and more.
