    That was just great Mike. I have a set of Purcell's choral works directed by Simon Preston. I have not listened to it for a while, will have to get busy.

    Finally took time to listen to "Music for Queen Mary's funeral".. very majestic sounding and ,love his cordial progressions and harmonies anyway.
