There's a slew of non-Christian spiritual music I enjoy as well. Good music is spiritual to me anyway, in a vague broad sense.

I always thought that album was way overrated and never got on with it, apart from that track

Gesualdo and Palestrina,my personal favorites for spiritual music,

both expressing the duality of hope and despair of the spiritual life.

 

The sounds of spiritual despair

Yeah crazy music and dude!

I would add the 4th book to that list.Check the La Venexiana recording.Probably my favorite classical record ever.

Amazing beyond belief.Their recording of Io Tacero is the single most heart wrenching thing ive ever heard.!

If you can get it,please do you wont regret it!

 

With the 4th you see the remorse and madness is starting to get to his brain but still havent do absolute damage.

Its more melancholic than pure darkness like the 5th and 6th.

Gesualdo is a genius in my opinion(mad genius that is)!Most intense vocal music ever written!It cuts your soul into pieces.

I have not cry more to any other composer or musician/music than Gesualdo madrigals.

Io Tacero,O dolorosa gioia and Moro Lasso are some of the most amazing music ever written.

 

But i think to fully get him,you have to have experienced,

or being experiencing extremely intense psychological pain yourself.If you are doing quite well,you will just think its weird music.

But if you are suicidal,in depression or mentally ill the music will hit you like a ton of brick,

because his music is like the perfect musical equivalent of these feelings.Anyway its how i feel.

 

I have not find the La Venexiana recording of Io Tacero,all the recording there is on youtube are 10 times less intense than their version

but this one is ok:

Here La Venexiana recording of O dolorosa gioia,most beautiful singing i know of:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvBFxefFlHk

Nice dramatic recording of Moro Lasso,the second part of the madrigal is pure pain:
