    Oh I had no idea. I thought Microsoft was putting it in. Does the site get credit if I manually put in a link to Amazon? The other thing is that the word Windows 7 was also linking. Is that also giving the site credit?

    But as you can see, I am entering this post on a Linux operating system and none of those words are linking. Also I turned off AdBlock and still they are not linking.

    Apparently the linking feature of this site does not work on Linux?

    Again, not a predominantly vocal album. In fact I was quite surprised by the singing in this, by Steve Dugardin and Capilla Flamenca. Very pleasing.

Also too much non-opera for me.
    I went to check her out and Apple Music has Bette Midler in the "you may also like" section.

    Listen to Hansel and Gretel by Humperdinck and see what they suggest.
