Tudor/Medieval
Folk
Classical, sometimes
Rarely do I listen to modern music (when I have the choice)

My fave at the moment though is the Becoming Jane soundtrack!

What A said, cept I'm not so much into folk.

Modern music counts as anything post 1850.... I like music I can dance to and while Romantic music is nice, it's not rythmic enough to function properly. Specially the Rachmaninov type stuff.

My favourite styles of music are located within the time slot 1100 - 1700!

This morning I have listened to a selection of Gergorian Gaudete from throughout the liturgical year being sung by the Nuns of St. Cecilias Convent, a best of compelation of the Prodigy (Their Law) and some Irish rebel songs. I enjoy artists from almost every genre but jazz.

Just dug out the carol CDs. Quite a few, so only likely to play each once.
Some medieval & Gregorian.

Quite like the Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band DVD of early music - medieval - 17c. Will be played several times! Nice arrangements on period instruments.

Truely amazing!

Christy is my favourite singer too.
Went to see him at Vicar st in Dublin on the 2nd. A brilliant evening :)

Hmm, mostly Industrial Metal at the moment but have been known to listen to;

Goth
Post-punk
Punk
80s pop
Electronica
Trip Hop
Heavy Metal
EBM
Hard Rock
Classical

To be honest I don't have any music beyond around 2005 because it was at that point that I decided that All Music Has Been Done Before and everything new was just a ripoff of what came before and therefore wasn't worth purchasing.

I have eclectic taste in music...

I like classical, especially baroque, Bach etc..
Earlier music from the middle ages, I love Wm Byrd, and his contmeporaries, ie. Mass for Four and Five Voices, etc..
Hard rock, anything from Led Zeppelin to Foo Fighters to Jimi Hendrix.

Scottish folk music, such as Dougie Maclean and Clannad to some of our local talent like Ray Moore and the Lemon Tarts.
Soft rock like the Dandy Warhols, I even like Phil Collins!
So many of each kind I can't think of them all, these are just a tiny selection of examples...

However, I don't care for modern or Ragtime jazz, nor do I like opera.

erm quite a wide range as well, from dire staights to sabastien bach and others in between. and some rammestein/german electro-goth-metal for anger management and a perfect sword drill tempo.

I have a broad range like female artists like kate bush and dar williams and suzanne vega, saw her once years ago, was drunk with friends and propositioned the base player from my seat near the front row.... scary..
Like most things barr complete pop rap heavy metal musicals are evil I like classical, bach vivaldi, monteverdi, choral, karl jenkins (armed man is great) I love carmina burana trilogy modern and medieval/ancient classical texts and am a serious 12th to 15th century obsessed lover of early music.. just ask panda.....
Fleetwood mac too lol

so many Christy fans ! "Follow me up to Carlow" is one of my Planxty favourites, although I hear they don't sing it anymore. He sings it with such savagery, and Fiach McHugh has piqued my interest, though I can't find that much about him on t'internet.......

I've been listening to an Icelandic folk-trance band called Valravn, a Finnish band called Hedningarna, Schelmish, Afro Celts and the Peatbog Faeries, Alan Stivell, Faun, Corvus Corax, and Mari Boinne, and I borrowed my Mum's City Waites record. If anyone knows where to get their stuff from, I'd like to know - amazon just lists the lot as "no longer available" !
