    For add this one is great fun although Nucci is too old for his part although he joins in well

    Even giving Popp and Bonney a listen did not move me to buy those sets, though they probably rate better than most I have. I still can't find a set I like better than my first one:


    I do have the following:

    Elixir of Love (sung in English)
    Cotrubas
    Devia
    Gheorghiu
    Sutherland

    On the BBC (U.K) they have a program called: Bargain hunt
