William Byrd's Masses (for 3, 4 & 5 Voices) - Deller Consort.

Problem is I can't think when I'm listening to it and I'm supposed to be working. Heartbreakingly beautiful.

anybody that expects work while something that glorious is being played is seriously delusional. they need our help and support. but not our cooperation.

kona - sounds like a party at my place. dude, you simply MUST check out "Dreamgirls" the moment it opens. i was listening to some of the soundtrack that a friend ftp'd over and wow. totally. wow.

thanks for the delbert link. he's an old pal. it's good to see him getting more of the respect he deserves, as a writer and performer.
