Meditation from Thais

When I was in college I  had no ear completely for classical music. I had a roommate in the boarding house who mentored me on music appreciation. That was how I discovered Beethoven.
But one of my earliest memories of classical music before I heard Beethoven was listening to Meditation from Thais by Jules Massenet on the radio. I kept on returning to that  music to lift myself,  at certain times,  when I was lonely.
Someone pieced together  a video of 7 women violinists performing Meditation from Thais and showed it on youtube. Here is the link:
