Thanks a lot, I will have to go through your list and place an order.
I also tend to prefer Baroque music/opera especially when it comes to singing.

Very happy to find a kindred spirit with Baroque music. We are living at good time for Baroque vocal music recordings. Along with historically informed performances and period instruments, there has been a renewed interest in Baroque and Early vocal music as well. And the wealth of beautiful and excellent music that is being rediscovered is astonishing. I feel fortunate to be able to savor this bounty in natural, spacious surround sound.

Musique and Sweet Poetrie - Emma Kirkby is one of mine favorites on the list. I love this program. And with the way Emma Kirkby performs these pieces, time just seems to stand still.

On Handel: Great Oratorio Duets - Carolyn Sampson, Robin Blaze, Carolyn Sampson and Robin Blaze give joyous performances of these duets.

Handel: Solo Cantatas - Marianne Beate Kielland is another lovely disk of Handel's works. You can probably tell I am a huge fan of Handel.

l'Esprit Galant - Johannette Zomer, Fred Jacobs has given me hours of listening enjoyment. Johannette Zomer has several fine SACDs of Baroque music on Channel.

I like many on Celebidache2000 and others' lists as well. Vivaldi's music is always a pleasure to listen to. Try to check out some samples on the various Amazon sites.

What of these?


Verdi & Puccini: Arias - Leontyne Price


That's one of my favorite SACDs. Great sound for an older recording and I can't think of a voice I prefer listening to. Also, the disc is extremely inexpensive.
