    Looks like this should be it. A very inexpensive CD ...

    I just checked my LP collection and I have the 1965 recording on LP but it has a very different LP cover.

    Make that three. My copy arrived last week. I have ordered two more Stile Antico titles, which will bring my total to 7. I wish I had a surround set-up; I bet they'd sound fantastic.

    Had a very peculiar experience last night. After my daughter's ballet lesson, I took her across the street to a frozen yoghurt store for some, well, frozen yoghurt. Just by the door sat a guy clutching a handful of LPs upright in his lap; the top of the stack, and hence the only one with cover art visible, was something or other on L'Oiseau Lyre with the Academy of Ancient Music under Hogwood (at least, as best I could tell from what I could see around his arm, but I've been collecting such things long enough that I can recognize them). Thinking to make friendly chatter with a fellow classical record enthusiast, I turned to him and said, "So, an admirer of Christopher Hogwood?" He just looked at me for a moment, then glanced down at the records, then said, "Oh, uh, yeah" in a flat monotone. And kept a total blank face and body language crying out "I don't want to talk to you or anyone else."

    He didn't appear to be with anyone else, and now that I think about it I don't think he was having any yoghurt. By the time I got my kid through the line, he'd left. Odd.

    I have most of Hogwood's recordings either on LP, open-reels or on CD already. I have not bought any LP's in over twenty years and doubt I will go back to that medium. On the other hand, music download is still not for me.

    The first track by William Cornysh, Woefully arrayed, is excellent ...

    The entire recording is quite good. I suspect I have some of the works in the many Tallis Scholars' recordings I already have. Track 7 Woefully Arrayed, for chorus (after William Cornysh) was composed by John McCabe, a contemporary English composer. I thought the track blends in quite well.

    Now that my CDP died at my hands, I am starting to reactivate my Vinyl mode.

    Boy, this is one great sounding LP...The dynamic range that a well recorded and played Lute can have is great.

    Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis by Ralph Vaughan Williams. There's lots of good performances. I'm partial to Eugene Ormandy/Philidelphia Orchestra, Leopold Stokowski/Royal Philharmonic and Neville Marriner/Academy of Saint Martins in the Fields.

    All good suggestions so far.

    I'll throw in several more:

    Bach - Brandenburg Concertos
    Schubert - Unfinished Symphony
    Dvorak - New World Symphony
    Mendelssohn - Italian Symphony (even better if paired with the Overture and Incidental Music to "Midsummer Night's Dream")

    also - my pitch for this thread

    If you're willing/able to invest around $100, I would recommend one of the bargain box sets of selections from specific classical labels that have been released over the past couple of years. I believe the Decca Sound, the Philips Original Jacket Collection, and the RCA Living Stereo boxes are still in print or available for not much more than $100. You get 50 or 55 discs of each company's most successful or acclaimed albums, spanning a wide variety of composers, performers, and classical genres, and most seem to have been selected for their spectacular sonics as well. The Living Stereo (and Mercury Living Presence) are limited to material from the mid-'50s through the mid-'60s, whereas the Decca and Philips sets include recordings made all the way up to the present. From having about the same number of classical CDs as you, the Decca Sound box started me on my classical journey around two years ago, and now I'm hooked.
