    Default Opera and Vocal CDs - Stuff your Stockings

    As of October of this year my CD collection numbered more than 4300, and I decided to put it on a diet. Although opera was a relatively small portion of the whole, I had a good many I was willing to part with. I've posted ads here and have had some gratifying responses, but I'm thinking it might be wise to post a special alert to opera fans.

    Here are the operas and vocal collections I'm offering for a song (figuratively speaking). The first list is of CDs in their original cases; the second list is of those I've kept in plastic sleeves (some are copies), usually with paperwork. The presence or absence of librettos is noted.

    The list of non-operatic music I'm selling is much longer than this, and I'll send it to anyone on request. If interested send me a PM.

    To reiterate what I've said elsewhere: I’ve purchased hundreds of CDs from Woodduck over the past couple of years, with the most recent order arriving just these last two days. He’s always offered impressive selections, unbeatable prices, and impeccable service. I recommend his sales without reservation; much of the above I would have grabbed up if I didn't have it already.

    If you're at all tempted by these offerings, don't hold back. You can buy with confidence!
