    Mostly DG, but EMI 9 is outta this world and into the next.

    I think the EMI is better technically but the DG is better spiritually. Just my subjective opinion, of course.

    Like Manxfeeder, DG better spiritually. But EMI is still great. I prefer the EMI for number 8. EMI does have better sound. I have both, and need both. These are the best. I have Karajan, Haitink, Inbal, Barenboim DG, Wand Cologne. Barenboim I am afraid, is not as good as the others.

    DG for me now................
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    EMI for me. The only one that I feel is better in the DG cycle is Symphony No. 4.

    Nice to think that it'll be the EMI 9 that Anton is playing on his celestial CD player ... and still considering a swathe of revisions !!

    Who knows? He may be content with an eternity of Te Deum at this point.

    Must be great for the Deity though, to have all those 'religious' composers around at his beck and call!
    May I allow myself a quick sketch?

    The Archangel (TA): Mornin' squire! Er ... I do beg your pardon ... Greetings, Lord!
    The Deity (TD): Hi Archie, how ya doin'?
    TA: Fine, Lord, just dandy. Er Lord, I've got that Anton outside again. Says he wants to see you 'bout something.
    TD: Oh, not again! I told him a thousand times already, I ain't lettin' him back on earth to assemble those sketches for the finale of his 9th. Can't the man stop floggin' a dead horse, for the love of my son Christ or what?
    TA: I know Lord, I know. Anyway, what's your fancy for this morning's marathon of musical marvels? A bit of Monteverdi? Palestrina? He's keen to croon you his latest Cantus Firmus!
    TD: Nah, none of them. I'm feeling a bit 'Protestant' this morning, if you catch my drift. Send me that Bach fellow, would you?
    TA:Er, which one, Lord?
    TD: Ah yes, I forgot, there are about 16 of 'em! Er, let's go for good ol' JS, shall we?
    TA: An excellent choice, Lord.

    Fin.
