            A friends wife is part of the choir on Cantate domino! The Church where it was recorded (Oscar) is within spitting distance from work. They captured the acoustics of the place very well indeed.

            Very cool!

            I wish someone would convince Naxos to release some of the Proprius recordings on reel-to-reel tape. This and JATP would be best sellers.

            When it comes to Christmas music I much prefer compilations as opposed to one artist releases. The exception to that would be Vince Guaraldi - A Charlie Brown Christmas. I do have about a dozen or so I inherited a long time ago, but I never play them.

                  We heard Messiah on Saturday night performed by the Trinity Wall Street Choir and Baroque Orchestra. A magnificent group from NYC. The choir is composed of 27 professional singers, 8 of whom shared the solo parts. They have a 37 member baroque orchestra, professional also. What I can tell from wiki and their website, is that they have only been doing this level of music since 2009, when they brought in a fine music director and conductor for the church (which is on the corner of Wall Street and Broadway, not far from Ground Zero. I had never heard of them before, but was very impressed. The not huge forces filled the quite large Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley with wonderful sound. I was quite impressed by both the choir and the orchestra, including many of the soloists. Interestingly, most of the Alto section were men, singing as countertenors, including two fine soloists. If you are in NYC, I highly recommend trying to get tickets to hear them do Messiah and other works.

                  The church itself is very old and owns a great deal of property in NYC, making it very wealthy also.
