God-bless you Steve! I hope others can be as forgiving and empathetic
as you. This is an argument that I can't touch. It will simply get me
in *the dog house*. It's kind of like telling my wife how to cook, in a
friendly sort of way. Perhaps it is exhausted and it is time to listen to
Britten's War Requiem. And by the way, what are the best recordings--top

Peacefully yours, Iain Simons
