I'm pretty sure I've heard that Mozart horn concerto, but that sounds like a cool recording! I'm less sure about the Sweet Honey in the Rock piece, but I've heard them live and they do great stuff.

I am listening to an internet radio station as I type and research called

can be free or subscriber based.

I like the country station.

the whole key with classical music, since everything's already been done, is the performances. when i heard about tuckwell (who was already the premier horn player of the world) doing a mozart cycle on a natural horn (which was the instrument that mozart wrote for) i began to get excited. then when i heard that sir neville mariner was conducting i knew it was going to be something special. mariner was one of the finest interpreters of mozart the last century produced. his delicate touch did not inhibit the passion of mozart in the slightest.

Every time I've gone to karaoke, I've looked for "Since I Fell For You" - that is a dreamy song to sing.

(this is maurinsky, under Loki's sign-on)
