    It is far too long since I listened to these. 6 is good and the other two are really very good indeed, especially 8.

    Cherubini's D Minor Requiem. Fabulous recording by the Prague Philharmonic Choir/Czech Philharmonic and Igor Markevitch:

    I bought this purely on a whim, and I'm glad I did!

    J S Bach, Cantatas BWV121 'Christum wir sollen loben schon', BWV40 'Darzu ist erschienen der Sohn Gottes', BWV110 'Unser Mund sei voll Lachens' - Katharine Fuge, Joanne Lunn (sopranos), Robin Tyson, William Towers (altos), James Gilchrist (tenor), Peter Harvey (bass), Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists, John Eliot Gardiner.

    The wrong time of year for these Christmas Cantatas but they still sound fine to me.

    Shostakovich 5 - one of Stokowski's many recordings. He was, for me, the ideal Shostakovich conductor.

    Ives, Symphony No 4 & Central Park in the Dark* - Jerome Rosen (piano)*, Tanglewood Festival Chorus, Boston SO, Seiji Ozawa.
    Truth be told I am still unsure if I fully 'get' Ives. CPITD - fine but the Symphony eludes me.

    I've been listening to the Faure Nocturnes recorded by Heidsieck.

    The 7th is a miracle. (The 6th didn't grab me as much.)



    Heidsieck is a master.
