    Krzysztof Penderecki: Symphony No. 7 'Seven Gates of Jerusalem'

    It's much less "modern" than I expected it to be, given it was written by Pendercki. He may have mellowed, and become a bit less radical in his approach to tonality.

    Choral writing at about 3:00 slightly resembles Shostakovich, in his Symphony No. 13. Interesting (and enjoyable!)
