    Purcell

    CD 2

    I love the Parley of Instruments and how they are recorded by Hyperion.

    Presto Classical still shows hundreds of new or re-released CD titles every month. So I'm clearly not the last human on Earth who still buys CDs.
    I still buy CDs when they are significantly cheaper than downloads. It's a space thing - I simply don't have an astronaut suit.

    I am a bit of a sucker for sampler discs - this one has some wonderful items from composers including Svendsen, Stenhammar, Langaard, Tveitt, and others...

    Goodness no, considering the amount of fungies....
    I have searched for LPs in such stacks. Often hours of searching with poor results and even worse playing conditions.

    It's time to tell you---

    You are part of a musical "truman show". You actually are the only human on earth who still buys CDs and it's all being filmed and we watch with hilarity on a regular basis.

    I hope you take this with some equity, but it is time you knew.

    Mackerras and the SCO-Beethoven 1st and 2nd Symphonies.

    I still collect CD's......a fellow member of TC tipped me off that this complete cycle (Hyperion)was available second hand at a very attractive price!
    So far......great!

    From the latest used bookstore rummaging.....

    Side 1 - Respighi - Feste Romane

    Released in 1961 and still sounds excellent.....clean, quiet. Not familiar with the piece or Respighi and there is nothing like reading the informative liner notes on the jacket while the record plays.
