  • If anyone is interested, you can get a free $2 credit to the Amazon MP3 store with the coupon code CLOUDMP3. Apply the credit to your account here. Many single MP3s are just 99 cents. Only a few days to use it though. It expires June 30.

    Come back and tell me what you bought so that I can save my time and not have to shop for something.  :smile:

  • The last time they gave free credit, I "bought" Pie Jesu and Panis Angelicus by Jackie Evancho.

    They're still good tracks, but I went just now to see if she had recorded more just to find that her new album has the protestant version of the Lord's Prayer. I thought she was Catholic and had hopes for some more pretty music.  :sad:

  • The price is right for Mozart.

    But I'll give it a day in case anyone here finds me something more interesting.  :guitar:

  • The aria "Sol da te mio dolce amore" from Vivaldi's opera Orlando furioso is a must hear for all lovers of vocal music:

    The Amazon sample doesn't get to the singing, but here is a very good recording:

  • Thanks, Vlad!

    That performance was impressive, but not the sort of thing I'd enjoy listening to over and over, so I went with Mozart. : )

  • One composer that has unfairly been consigned to the dustbin of history (pretty much) is Silvius Leopold Weiss. You will not find more "easy listening" than his lute works.

    A rather beautiful reconstruction of the above piece (which is missing the flute part):


    Allemande in f# minor:
