Dear XYZ and Friends,

Greetings and Good Evening.

I thought I would bring your attention to something I found a few days back on a "Classical Music Blog".

Check it out.

Finnish Radio currently has a large number of MP3'S of Performances of Conductors such as Yehudi Menuhin, Arturo Toscanini, Dinu Lipatti, Pablo Casals, Alfred Cortot, Kirsten Flagstad, and many more.

The whole site is in Finnish, but navigation is intuitive.

Just select the artist from the left hand side of the page, then select the Real Audio or MP3 hyperlink under the composition.

Each MP3 download has a spoken introduction of around 20 seconds in Finnish, but the Music is really great.

The Link where you need to go is:


"Treasure trove of historic MP3 downloads"

Hi DB Bolton,

Greetings and Good Morning.

I guess you are talking about me -- The Poster with the long user name.

Well, "LOVEROFSACREDCHORALMUSIC" was my second choice.

When registering, my first choice was not accepted because perhaps there was someone with a similar user name here so I chose this name.

Enjoy the Music.

If I get to know any other awesome stuff in the following days or weeks, I will get back to y'all.

Have a Great Day.
