I have about 5 hours worth of reading ahead of me of hep-ph papers and was wondering if anyone has any favourites/suggestions for non-distracting background music.

I have a couple of Beirut albums on this computer, and a best-of Chopin, but thats it, so it gets repetitive really quickly.

Suggestions!
Probably adagios, pastorales and nocturnes would work. How about Haydn? Lizst? Camille Saint-Saens? Debussy? Bach?

I like Ralph Vaughn Williams and Samuel Barber, too.

Avoid tunes with lyrics

Of course, one could listen to the classic Moody Blues in the background.
