Almost the threepenny opera


After paying £4.40 for two cups of coffee in a store in Norwich I walked round the corner to Prelude Records. There I bought the newly re-issued CD of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas recorded by Andrew Parrot and the Taverner Choir and Players in 1999 for the non-discounted price of £4.88. I assume someone at Sony BMG has discovered the formula for turning sausages back into pigs.

Readers who do not have the Belcea Quartet's exemplary accounts of Britten's three string quartets from 2005 on an EMI double CD should note they are currently available for the very silly price of £5.78 including UK delivery from amazon.co.uk
