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.
