    I am listening to so much early church music these days that my family are wondering if I have just "got religion" or perhaps that I am dying! But, of course, it is quite the opposite - where there is life there is a desire for new music!

    I remember the day I bought this as a LP and went afterwards to the cinema to watch the movie "The last Emperor ".

    By the way there is no harm in "wondering ".

    Seeing the Shakespeare's Musick set above reminded me that I have this. I guess things will have changed as to how to perform this music but this is a pretty good disc - with enough variety and verve to remain an enjoyable experience to the end.

    Zelenka - Il Serpente di Bronzo, cantata / Viktora, conductor / Nibiru CD

    Very well and lively played and sung. There is a prominent counter-tenor, but he is doing OK.
    Examples of Zelenka's intricate writing for the winds too, and among his attractive works.

    Zelenka - Missa Nativitatis Domini etc. / Stryncl / Supraphon CD

    The Mass features two very prominent horns, at least in this performance, making large parts of it in fact a horn concerto, with an often very charming result. It's all well played and sung.

    Alicia has performed and recorded EVERY single work of Soler, Albeniz and Granados. I strongly believe that her Interpretations are the best in human history (for these 3 composers ) Also, she is one of the VERY FEW pianists who can perform Schumann! Her Fantasie in C is the VERY BEST and the reference for the other pianists. It is said that her Mozart also is Wonderful. Here I can say nothing. I have her recordings but I never listened to them…

    Faure, Frank and Berlioz are the three MONSTERS of France Music. (France Music! Not music generally) To make analysis of their superiority is useless. They are like Nokia, Sony and Motorola with the cell phones. They first invented and the other followed them…
