    When Judith and Emma sang duet together, it was voice harmony of the highest order and absolutely out of the world ... :righton:

    While I have always enjoyed the solo by Emma or her duet with Judith, I also enjoy the recordings by the great Dutch Soprano Elly Ameling and the English Soprano Lynne Dawson ...

    I am going through my pre-recorded cassettes to cull the ones I now have on CD. I will donate them to Goodwill. So far I have 44, mostly jazz & classical.

    You won't be disappointed in Janis's playing. He was one of the greats!

    One of Emma Kirkby's best vocal performances.

    I guess this comes from recording Judith Nelson so many times, but I would never confuse the two voices. Emma has a glorious clarity in the middle registers. There was a touch of fog and grain in the late Ms. Nelson's voice.

    Rounding off today`s Martinu Neumann CPO hearing with Symphony 3 (recorded digitally in the early 80`s) - a bit slower than the 70`s analogue effort from the same pairing makes this 3rd even bit more mysticall and the same time pervaded to me.......

    Cassettes are how I did my classical listening in the 1980s when I was in the Air Force living in the barracks. The quality was usually better than the pop/rock cassettes I owned.

    That's a composer that's on my "need to check out works by" list.

    In the mid eighties I worked at the Tower Records, Berkeley California stocking and maintaining the classical music section. I had a good cassette recorder. It was far too easy to hear how the majors cheaped out on cassette duplication, particularly when my copies off of LPs sounded so much better. All that I learned at the time as regards making needledrops led to a decade's worth of recording of [mostly] classical music in the ninties. But back in the mid-eighties, a homebrew copy of an LP to metal tape was the best most people could use for portable sound.

    The classical section had around a fifth of the titles the LP room. Furthermore, the cassettes were filed with the rest of the tapes, on the main floor. The folks in the back room were not quite as comfortable on the main floor. And I didn't look the part of your typical classical music clerk, more like the activist/Deadhead/Hippie that I was and mostly still am. So Melvin and Jay preferred that I work on the main floor. Very strange time for the "music industry", when good vinyl pressings were getting harder and harder to find, cassettes were even worse and the very first CDs found their way onto the shelves, in longboxes, some under glass and locked, all of them crazy expensive. Predictably classical music fans were the first to start picking up those longboxes and there were a lot of classical music fans in Berkeley back in 1984.

    I missed you by a few miles. I was stationed at Travis AFB and spent many a Saturday afternoon in the Bay and Columbus Tower in San Francisco.

    Some years back I picked up a bunch of cassettes at 25 cents each or even 2 for a quarter. Some were unplayable. On those that could be played, SQ ranged from abysmal to surprisingly good. Literally a mixed bag.
