Trying to figure which to get. I like the Sung in English one but it is about 30 minutes shorter (2 disks).

This one is only two discs (the other two are each 3 CDs) and it is said in Amazon reviews that there are cuts and the tempo is rather fast. I liked it in the samples (there were no samples of the other two).

I only know the Sony/Gelmetti CD set. I've been very tempted by the new Zedda recording, though (Btw, offered very cheaply on Presto Classical).

Why not opt for the Dynamic Blu ray? It's an interesting staging and well sung.

The one with the metal tubes? I thought the staging rather strange, but I guess if it is only for the audio it would be all right.
