    Ha Ha! Sounds like you were at the party!

    I wanna listen!

    I think what actually happened though, was you finished your coffee and did the chicken dance all the way out the door, turned around, smiled and waved goodbye to all the other customers staring at you in disbelief.

    My listening not as wild and crazy as your coffee mornings.

    Lots of top-notch Rameau arias as I start walking home, then… the telephone rings. Emmanuelle Haďm answers, muttering ‘I thought we got them disconnected” Who is it? “Folly” “Ah no, you weren’t invited” - but you can’t stop Patricia Petibon launching into a totally bonkers aria from Platée, with lots of fun improv.

    More arias.

    Suddenly the sun clouds over, and a frozen pall falls over the warm Auckland day, as Christopher Purves chills me to the bone with Purcell’s Cold Song.

    Nearly home. As I go down the hill, Philippe Jaroussky and Pascal Bertin launch into Purcell’s “Sound the trumpet”. Almost imperceptibly a Latin beat creeps in and by the time I’m halfway down we are right in the middle of a salsa party … which morphs again into English Baroque by the end. The crowd goes wild.

    This is a party I wish I had gone to.

    This sounded so good, I had to run out and buy it - well, run to Arkivmusic, anyway. It certainly is a good intro to a wide range of baroque masterpieces, composers and styles. Bad news is I bought it as an MP3, so no program notes.

    The good news is I can do the chicken dance in the privacy of my own home and only you guys will ever know.

    My, my!

    I just started listening to this but had to transfer to Sennheiser as I immediately thought this is something that deserves some welly.

    This is cheapest way I can find to store large CD collections, takes some time and effort to assemble the CD rack. I also use a hot glue gun purchased from local Home Depot store to further strengthen unit after inserting back panels

    Thank god it has free shipping, two boxes weighing 122 lbs, UPS man will hate you however, heh heh

    I had at least two Verdi votes in every round of favorite opera poll, all the early operas are great and you really should buy all the Gardelli conducted series for Phillips. There is also a very good recent DVD from Tutto Verdi series of I Due Foscari with Leo Nucci.......
