Gabriel's Oboe - by Ennio Morricone, from the movie "The Mission," one of the loveliest pieces ever written.
Essence of "The Swan" - Balfour Knight's adaptation of the theme from Saint-Saens' "Le Cygne/The Swan." It's beautiful, and it's miraculously lever-free!

Hector the Hero - a lovely Scottish lament by J. Scott Skinner.
Quiet Centre Medley - includes both "Come and Find the Quiet Centre" and "Alone Yet Not Alone."
