A sign of the Grimes


£14.99 ($30) for the new recording of Benjamin Britten's Peter Grimes conducted by the delight of the classical music industry is a fantastic bargain. But £14.99 ($30) for the same musician's acclaimed accounts of Peter Grimes and Verdi's Falstaff on 5 CDs? As the credit crunches that really is a sign of the Grimes.

More a cava moment than a champagne moment?

I can better the LSO Live offer.

Today I ordered Brilliant Classic's newly recorded and just released 7 CD set of Purcell's complete chamber music for £17.10 delivered to the UK from the States.
