Well! The nerve of some people. The box arrived a month ago, and on cursory inspection I found it wasn’t quite what I had in mind – it should have been 30 CDs of HM albums by its creme de la creme, ikndividual works by individual composers, single performing artists or groups. Instead, I discovered an anthology of music marching through Western civilization, with various composers and performers on each disc. I put it aside to reserve for my grandson who’ll need it one day – he’s now only on the cusp of 4. So before taking it over to storage this morning, I inspected the collection more closely and found myself amazed at its scope and offering. I’ve now listened in rapt attention to the first three CDs, the development of chant, leading up to the invention of polyphony.

You should understand I have an enormous collection, no fluff, and I’m well read in music, have sung with a major symphony chorus. So it’s time to eat some humble pie and admit to the idea I should learn and listen a lot more. This collection is wonderful. My grandson will have to rip it out of my cold, dead hands, sweet little guy that he is

  1. Thank you very much. I like sacred music and Harmonia Mundi series is very good.

  2. I can not download the CD 07 and 15. When I access Filepost I get the following message on both:
    We are sorry, the server where this file is located is currently unavailable, but should be recovered soon. Please try to download this file later.
    And that from day 3.

  3. @denmark5
    Everything working fine, I’ve downloaded all files without errors.
    @Whatever
    Thank you so much for everything!

  4. In commercio non vi sono molte raccolte di musica sacra. Perciò sono sempre benvenute. Grazie.

    In commerce there are not many collections of sacred music. Therefore, they are always welcome. Thank you.
