    Get 10 of the top albums of 2015 in the Windows Store for free


    Im Christina Calio, and Im on the Groove team here at Microsoft. Today Im happy to let you know that were making 10 of the top albums from 2015 available in the Windows Store, for free for our Windows 10 fans as a gift from us for the holidays, and to say thank you for the support*! The eclectic group of albums were presenting includes the newest albums from Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, and Breaking Benjamin. Weve included artists and albums nominated for multiple Grammys at the upcoming 58th annual Grammy Awards, which will take place this February in Los Angeles.

    Some of my favorites include the debut album from the charming and talented James Bay, who is up for Best New Artist and Best Rock Album, Currents from Tame Impala which I keep on repeat and is up for Best Alternative Album, and Sound and Color from Alabama Shakes, a phenomenal live band with an album so good its in the running for six Grammys including Album of the Year.

    In these crazy-busy-hectic and all too often troubling times, music can heal, bring release, spread harmony, and remind us all to take a moment to smile.

    Heres more information on the artists and albums, with links to the Windows Store where you can download them for free to your Windows 10 devices and play them with the Groove app.

    Hi there

    anything for Classical Music fans

    for example I love the works of the old Flemish composer Johannes Ockegehem

    Johannes Ockeghem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Here's the Kyrie -- and his music will survive for a lot longer than some of the so called modern stars
    Johannes Ockeghem - Missa Prolationum - Kyrie - YouTube

    Here's the whole Mass

    Johannes Ockeghem / Cappella Nova, 1978: Missa Prolationum - Complete, Digitized LP - Indexed - YouTube

    Another one

    Johannes Ockeghem - Missa Au Travail Suis - YouTube

    Music IMO has largely REGRESSED since 1450 -- this guy lived BEFORE the magnificent polyphony of the Renaissance period -- and all with NATURAL Voices -- not a load of electronics that a ROBOT could generate. These guys had to SING (literally for their supper). !!

    Happy Hols though everyone whatever your music tastes.


    Cheers

    And probably not a melody in the entire lot memorable enough that you could hum or whistle it after even a dozen listens.

    Alabama Shakes are pretty decent. Saw them in Calgary at Folk Fest.
