    The Baroque Opera Winner - Caccini's L'Euridice.

    Here's Our Top Ten:

    1. Caccini - L’Euridice
    2. Monteverdi - L'Orfeo
    3. Purcell - Dido and Aeneas
    4. Charpentier - Le malade imaginaire
    4. Handel - Giulio Cesare
    6. Cavalli - Eliogabalo
    7. Lully - Alceste
    8. Purcell - The Fairy Queen
    9. Arne - Alfred
    10. Jacquet de La Guerre - "Cephale et Procris"
    10. Rameau - Les Indes Galantes

    That's a fine collection of music. It was great to hear many operas I had not listened to in the past, especially those from Caccini and Cavalli. So the low game participation was more than offset by some new discoveries.

    Maybe this game was not very thrilling from a competitive aspect but the Music was very rewarding all the way through. My perspective of Baroque Opera has changed immensely (in a positive way of course).

    Thank you Bulldog for conducting this game and thank you fellow members of TC for nominating such great works!

    I'm sorry I couldn't participate more regularly but I'm really glad we did this. Thank you, Bulldog!
