    Very Mahlerish sounding piece. Bought it for Orgonasova.

    Since I am seeing Joyce DiDonato perform this in December, I thought I should get familiar with it. I was torn between this one and the one with contralto Nathalie Stutzmann, but Brigitte won out for two reasons: 1) DiDonato is a mezzo so better I listen to a mezzo sing this and 2) as much as I like contralto voice Nathalie did not seem as good overall with this work, but I will check her out elsewhere.

    This is not an opera, but more of an oratorio, but nicely continues my obsession with Joan of Arc, which stated with a 10-cent comic-book-fomat life-of story. I never knew what an amazing story Joan's is. This is a rather dark work, being her trial and burning at the stake, but musically wonderful. Here are sound clips.

    So they have a 20% off used sale at Dearborn Music to the end of the year. I took in a couple fist-fulls of CDs to sell. They bought 2/3 of the CDs for $35. I purchased the following and got about $20 in change after tax:

    $5.59 sale price:


    $6.39 sale price:


    And two from the dollar bin (80 cents each on sale):



    This one is sound track highlights:

    What a great system!

    I know you can sell stuff on Amazon etc but it must be fun to get cash in hand like this.

    It is fun. I could get more money on Amazon (or Ebay) but some things may sit a long time before they sell, or you might get a customer complaint etc., and it takes time to list and ship. This way, while I get relatively peanuts for the CDs, I can offload them quickly and, as you say, immediate cash in hand is nice. And I can feel good about supporting my local brick and mortar store both in purchasing and in supplying them with decent stock to sell. I have seen sets they gave me $3 for and then priced at $15. Of course many may sit in their racks quite a while. I am good with it. They are good people and always helpful to me.

    That Messiah looked appealing -- Sam Ramey and Kathleen Battle -- so I snooped around YouTube and found a clip of the entire performance. Rather more ornamentation than I like, but he gets to sing "But who may abide the day of his coming." Unfortunately, Amazon wants nearly $80 for the recording, so you definitely got a real bargain. I'll have to be content with listening to YouTube.

    It has multiple covers you can see here: http://messiah-guide.com/davis.html

    Highlights set is cheap on Amazon if it has the aria you want. Otherwise I see it for $27 shipped on Ebay. I am surprised it is so scarce and expensive.

    If you are really interested in a copy, I would sell you mine as I already have a top three (Somary, Solti, and Pearlman). Think it would be under $10 shipped in the US. PM me if you wish to do that.
