    Canteloube - Chants' d'Auvergne: Kiri te Kanawa.

    Always a pleasure to hear Kiri's fine voice.

    Me too, yesterday. For some reason Quasthoff's Winterreise makes me cry. Quite frequently.

    Pretty. I listened to it on Spotify so without any documents to hand. Being unfamiliar with the works it might be a bit more interesting to know what she is actually singing

    I am working my way true my compilation CD'S .
    Not the ones with just one artist , no those I bought in a spur of the moment thing.
    I have a good friend who worked in a record store and he knows my taste.
    So every time he saw a compilation CD with one of my favourites he ordered it for me.
    I never forget the most trilling (at that time) a compilation on IMPX called the Great Italian Duets.
    I enters the store and he pushed the play button from the store speakers an guess what:

    Mira, O Norma by Souliotis and Cossoto,the first time even on a C.D
    I taught that all my dreams came true , alas just the duet.
    It seams a bit silly in this day and age with the internet but import CD"s were strictly prohibited in my country at that time.
    So I am going to contniu reminiscing toady with golden oldies.

    I don't know if, over the years, you were able to buy the whole Norma recording with Suliotis and Cossotto but, if not, it is again being offered by Presto Classical in the U.K.:

    Ha, Ha!

    I understand this very well (and suffer from it too). It is called the must-have syndrome, otherwise known in that other place... er what's it called... oh yeah, the real world... as bonkers! What do they know I ask myself (I frequently run out of other people to ask).

    I have much worse (or better?) examples but let's leave it at that for today. We don't want forum readers to think I'm a complete loooonaticc.

    Another recording that I am totally over excited about. A pot of various Vivaldi's compostitions. The music is glorious and the singing is absolutely stunning. I can not point to any one part in particular because I love most of the works on this CD. Oh fans of Vivaldi, sacred works of early 18th century, Bertagnolli, Invernizzi and Mingardo get this. Straight to the top of Clayton charts!

    Penguin gives this four stars. I would like to give it more. I would like four stars to give it a penguin.
