Discographies, discographies… Harmonia Mundi, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Erato, Olympia, sorting out the different editions, barcodes, etc. This is encroaching on my listening time, and even more reviewing time.

Well, I did listen to, review and publish another beautiful recording by Medieval music ensemble Sequentia, Shining Light / Lumière on Deutsche Harmonia Mundi (English and French edition). Took the occasion to transfer over here other reviews of Sequentia’s Hildegard von Bingen recordings posted on Amazon.com a year and a half ago, Canticles of ecstasy and O Jerusalem, as well as their program of English Songs of the Middle Ages. Created my Von Bingen composer’s page which really should have been a Hildegard composer’s page – but for more on that, go to the page. Started a Sequentia CD discography, which I hope to be able to publish soon… Should also move on with my Concerto Köln discography… But when these discographies are meant to be made public, as opposed to “for my own use”, it involves in fact LOTS of research work: editions, reissues, recording dates, barcodes… Takes time… Encroaches on my listening and reviewing time….
