  1. Listening to some good mates from Guildhall in London and their recent PROMs appearance performing some Bach Canatas (19, 130, 149 & 50). On BBC radio for a little while yet. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0007rjk hope it is ok to link to the BBC radio.
  2. Item: Yellowtech PUC2 Lite Location: Brisbane Price: $300 plus postage and Paypal fees (3%) if required Item Condition: VGC Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal if posting Extra Info: A simply great XMOS usb/spdif converter.

Here is a review thread here on SNA about the PUC 2 Lite and a link to Mark's original listing. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. this is me for tonight...also a big fan of Robert Dean Smith but Pentatone got a super cast for this recording.
  4. I am a big fan of Stuart Burrows - great artist.
  5. I am interested if Steve doesn’t buy. Let me know mate.
  6. previous century is still pretty good - some might say it is better 😉
  7. my morning listen...so good to have a new recording set.
  8. me for the afternoon...Vickers was a master.
  9. I don't think I have reached the stage yet where I have listened to Dawn too many times 🙄 that said I was keen to hear the new recording. My immediate reaction to Beth was to recoil but I stuck with it. Obvious pretty quickly she isn't classically trained but it was so different to Dawn's very prim version I was captivated. The very fast vibrato and vocal pushing really felt brittle and tenuous and strangely appropriate to the text. The whole piece was very unsettling but in a way it worked. I got to the end and felt completely on edge. I wouldn't regard it as enjoyable at all but it certainly had something to say. I haven't heard Sym #4 yet.... You are right though it would all be very boring if every recording was the same.
  10. I have long been a fan of Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs). I hadn't heard about this new recording but am going to enjoy the journey tonight. See how measure measures up to Dawn. thanks again
  11. actually no. guess I know what i am listening to tomorrow.
