    Yes, I remember you telling me and I have been thinking about it since. I am looking forward to listening to it, especially Josť Carreras' Edgardo.

    Ordered it from Amazon.de for a fraction of what it would cost from a market seller in UK

    Whilst the Snow Maiden was the only other complete opera I could find with a recording with favourable reviews.

    I forgot about Amazon.de option.

    Yes but my holy mission statement includes the Divina recording for Lucia, La sonnambula and Tosca.

    Divina records told me they were going to reprint the CD's in November. I guess they decided not to.

    I think at some point I will need to figure out how to download Flac lossless audio file and burn to CD. AND find a computer with stable internet connection to do so.

    When you get this figured out, be sure to let me know! I looked up the Pristine Tosca last night, but was not able to find the CD - only the MP3s, which, considering that I've been doing MP3 downloads from Arkivmusic without (too much) trouble, shouldn't be as intimidating as they seem.

    In the meantime, I'm looking forward to spending a leisurely afternoon or two browsing in Dussmann in Berlin!

    Now that was a lot of hard work and VERY expensive.

    Total cost

    Download = GBP 12

    Time taken (download + (research on how to +) burn to CD) = 5 hours

    Though worth it (I hope).

    I have all those Divina Label releases as 312 KB MP3 downloads, the Lucia above has very nice 84 page PDF digital booklet with amazing photos and printed material. Took a few minutes to download, I just keep it in digital form on my harddrive (and back-up on USB harddrive)

    The Pristine Classical release is the "ultimate" Callas Lucia..........
