Karl posted his collection as a simple list, so I decided to join the
party. My files can be found at:

Both versions are identical.

I made no such attempt. This is basically a list of how my collection
looked a few months ago. I'm behind in my data entry. So, my listing
is basically everything. I did remove obvious duplicates. Also, a lot
of detail is missing. For instance, I have Bach cello suites played on
viola and on double bass. That isn't indicated here. Many times I have
version of piano 4-hands and orchestra, for example. Instrumental
variations are not noted in this list. All items listed are on commercial
CDs. My collection is primarily instrumental music after 1600, and
primarily vocal before that date.

My listing is going to be boring compared to a listing that includes
broadcast tapes, etc. But I do think I've found some very obscure CDs
over the last 20+ years, so there may be some things there of interest.
