A Wishlist

I got this idea from a friend of mine. Please, by all means, do not feel obligated in any manner. This is basically a way to relieve some stress for those who might agonize over what to get me (who that would be is beyond me).

Anyway, here's my (fairly practical) wish list for Christmas/my birthday:

(https://theh2.co.uk/iona/store/The_Iona_Store.htm)

Plumb - Chaotic Resolve

-CDs that contain-
Brahms - Ein Deutsche Requiem (preferably Deutsche Grammophon label)
Poulenc - Three Novelettes For Piano
Handel - The Messiah
Bach - Mass in B minor
Bach - Magnificat
Bruckner - Te Deum
(if in doubt, look for: the Vienna Philharmonic; the Cleveland Philharmonic; the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields; the Orchestre de la Société des Concerts du Conservatoire; the London Philharmonic; Herbert von Karajan as director; Robert Shaw as director; Dietrich Fisher-Dieskau as a soloist; Deutsche Grammophon label; Naxos label; etc.)

It's uncanny how many of the books on your list are on my list, or I have read in the last year or so. I am going to have to add Robin Hood onto my list, I have been thoroughly enjoying reading old children's classics.
