During the past decade or two, there's been a chorus of objections to the name given the sort of Western music commonly referred to as "Classical Music" and there've been a number of suggested replacements for the name ("Art Music", "Concert Music", "Composed Music", "Notated Music", etc.) none of which has achieved any real or widespread traction as a replacement. It's occurred to us there's a perfect name for this sort of Western music and it refers to a trait common to all such music, either demonstrated or aspired to: the capacity to transcend the culture and associations of the era of its creation and speak anew to all succeeding cultures and eras, both Western and other. The present common name almost captures it but not quite. We suggest a more apposite name for this sort of Western music would be "Classic Music" using "classic" in its sense of "of the highest quality or rank; having recognized and permanent value; of enduring interest and appeal" (Merriam-Webster). It seems to us "Classic Music" is an easy and natural transformation of the present common name; one that requires no lexical stretch or contortions whatsoever in order to employ regularly.
