Re: OT Some musical discoveries
- Dear Priyadarshan,
I am also a shameless lover of Verdi's Requiem. It's really fantastic. I have a version where Leontyne Price sings the soprano. What a marvellous voice.
I have Sri Chinmoy's Heart-Power-Victory tape, an organ performance, recorded in Australia. It is remarkable. I listen to it often.
Thank you for your constant inspiration, too, Priyadarshan. I especially like your newest book, "The Tuscan Guide to Scones."
I will look for the version of the Vespers with Emma Kirby- thank you for this recommendation. Do you remember the name of the conductor?
I always like reading your reminescences of your college music days. You write about music with such passion and immediacy.
