True - but I believe the Brits also say say "tears welled up in his/her eyes"....which in my book of ghastly American slang means "tear up."

I would also add that worn-out favorite, Air on G String, the Chaconne, and the Largo from his Double Violin Concerto. If I'm reaching for Kleenex, I've either got a a cold, or I'm listening to one of my Bach favorites. There are other composers who can move me to tears, but not as often as Bach does.

The "Kyrie," "Crucifixus" and "Gratias agimus tibi" get me every time.

Just listened to snippets of each on youtube. Gotta get away from the computer for a few minutes and compose myself.
