Mass in C major, K. 337 "Solemnis"

The Missa solemnis in C major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, K. 337, was written in 1780 for Salzburg. It was Mozart's last complete mass; the mass is scored for soloists, choir, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones and organ, the latter supplying figured bass for most of the duration. The setting is divided into six movements: Kyrie Gloria Credo Sanctus Benedictus Agnus DeiThe Sanctus recalls features of the Kyrie, has a violin figure Mozart used again in Idomeneo; the Benedictus is peculiar for Mozart's mass settings in that it is an austere fugue in an archaic style. The autograph of the mass features an alternative setting of the Credo; this setting has a length of 136 measures and abruptly ends after the words "cuius regni non erit finis". It is not clear why Mozart stopped work on this setting and instead began work on the second – and complete – setting of the Credo on the next page of the autograph, but this may be due to the fact that Mozart had forgotten to set the words "sub Pontio Pilato" to music in the first draft.

Stony Brook station (Boston and Maine Railroad)

Stony Brook was a Boston and Maine Railroad station in Weston, Massachusetts along what is the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Fitchburg Line. The station was located adjacent to the Upper Post Road, with a building on the inbound side of the tracks, it is named for Stony Brook. When the Central Massachusetts Railroad was first being planned in the late 1870s, it was to have diverged from the Fitchburg Railroad mainline at Stony Brook Junction, just past the station. However, a separate route through Waltham was built instead, the Central Mass instead crossed the Fitchburg on a bridge at Stony Brook Junction; this station was closed and the building removed by 1951 due to the construction of Massachusetts Route 128 and the new rotary interchange with US-20. In 1973, the MBTA proposed building a number of new parking garages to serve suburban commuters. One possible location was at the former Stony Brook site.

Youthanasia

Youthanasia is the sixth studio album by American thrash metal band Megadeth, released on 1 November 1994 through Capitol Records. The album is not a large stylistic departure from the band's earlier recordings; the album's title is a play on words. The cover art features an elderly woman hanging babies by their feet on a endless clothesline. Youthanasia received positive reviews upon its release, it was commercially successful, peaking at number 4 on the Billboard 200 chart, was certified platinum for shipping one million copies in the United States—a distinction achieved in 1995. A remixed and remastered edition featuring several bonus tracks and detailed liner notes was reissued on 27 July 2004. Megadeth's previous studio release, Countdown to Extinction, became the band's biggest commercial accomplishment, entering the Billboard 200 at number two and becoming double platinum; as a result, they continually sold-out arenas across North America, in addition to developing a strong following overseas.

With the next album, the band moved towards a more mainstream sound. It was a time of problems and conflicts for Megadeth, that in every two weeks or so, according to frontman Dave Mustaine, there were "outrageous emotional interventions" in order to make the group a democracy. Many band meetings during this period concerned Mustaine's creative control over a "successful formula", so that the rest of the band could better exercise their creativity. Another problem was the indecision on. Mustaine did not want to record in Los Angeles, so it was decided to record in Phoenix, since the majority of the band resided in Arizona; the sessions for the album began in Phase Four Studios in January 1994, after a few weeks the sessions were moved to Vintage Recorders in Phoenix and continued there into May- this studio is the location for scenes in the Evolver video. Producer Max Norman suggested that they build a new self-dedicated studio, in cooperation with the band and Max's funding a modular studio was built in a warehouse in South Phoenix.

Talking about the recording process, Mustaine said that Youthanasia was written in the studio. "We weren't playing any cataloged material. None of the past influenced the new record." He mentioned that he gave "more freedom" to the other members and called the album "very much a total band effort". Of interest is that this was hoped to be the "first" album recorded on hard drives, Both Max and Dave were believers in being on the cutting edge of technology, Max had long been using computers to sample and comp tracks. Digidesign was working on expanding Pro Tools from a single track to multitracking and it was hoped that as many as 48 digital tracks could be synced and used to record; the computers used were Apple Quadra 400/500 models and with a great effort by all, it was soon evident that magnetic tape would have to be used. The cover art by Hugh Syme features an elderly woman hanging babies by their feet on a endless clothesline. According to bassist David Ellefson, the artwork concept was directly inspired from a line of the title track, "We've been hung out to dry".

He explained that the title track "was the strongest representation of how we feel about the young people who listen to our music and what their future holds for them. It's like you have a choice, you can become proactive or you can choose'Youthanasia'." The title is a combination of the words "youth" and "euthanasia". Mustaine has stated that the idea for the title stems from hearing about Jack Kevorkian, as well as the declining state of well-being of young people referring to issues like drugs and violence, a lack of parenting; the album was released on 1 November 1994 through Capitol Records. Promotion included the first official website for a band, "Megadeth, Arizona", described by its conceiver, Robin Sloan Bechtel, as “a virtual cybertown in cyberspace" where fans gathered in an online community that among other things offered news regarding Megadeth's new album. Youthanasia was commercially successful and peaking at number 4 on the Billboard 200, with 143,000 units sold in its first week.

This marked the band's second top five album below the number two peak of Countdown to Extinction in 1992, the band would only reach such a landmark again in 2016 with Dystopia. Several weeks after its release, the record was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipping one million copies in the United States; the album managed to enter into the top 10 in the United Kingdom and some other European countries as well. It received a platinum certification from Music Canada and a silver award from the British Phonographic Industry for shipments of 100,000 and 60,000 copies, respectively. A remixed and remastered edition featuring several bonus tracks and detailed liner notes was reissued on 27 July 2004. Three singles were released from Youthanasia: "Reckoning Day", "Train of Consequences" and "A Tout le Monde"; the latter would be re-recorded with Lacuna Coil vocalist Cristina Scabbia under the title "À Tout le Monde". This version was released as a single, included on United Abominations.

Both "Train of Consequences" and "A Tout le Monde" charted on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. A special promotional copy of the album was issued with an essay by suspense novelist Dean Koontz entitled "Godzilla vs. Megadeth"
