    I do thinks that's going to be a long wait, not commercial enough.

    Today skimming the bottom of my Martha list. First one is live recording of a Reggie theatre performance that I have not warmed up to yet. Second is sung in Italian and just does not sit right with me because of that. Third is a performance in English that has a Gilbert and Sullivan goofiness to it that also doe not sit well with me. Maybe after having set these aside for a year or so, I will appreciate them more. Anyway this is my playlist for today. I'll throw in the Solti Messiah if I have time because I just went to a live Messiah performance last night and so am getting the bug to listen to that some more.

    Edit, now that I have been listening:

    This one is decent, but I just don't think the singing can compare to that of the Popp/Jerusalem set. These singers, IMO, are just not as good.


    I had to quit this one after the first act. Italian just does not work for me in this opera.


    This one is not so bad, I think I am warming up to it. And it is rather humorous. G&S is probably a hyperbolic characterization. And, at least I can follow some of the words.

    Well, there is this. Not exactly what I had in mind, but similar to LvB's Leonore.
