5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Christmas, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Winchester Cathedral Choir at the time of this recording were the finest in the country, and this recording does them full justice


The Best Of: A Christmas Caper
The Best Of: A Christmas Caper
Price: £13.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely fresh compilation and antidote to the saccharin sweetness of so many offerings at this time. Maddy Prior has such a great voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars retro Christmas, 27 Feb 2014

These decorations were good quality and took me back to childhood, even if the cake wasn't quite as good as my mother's. People were so taken by the decorations they didn't notice!


Wicker Dog Bed Basket, 100 cm, Extra Large
Wicker Dog Bed Basket, 100 cm, Extra Large
Price: £42.00

5.0 out of 5 stars No dog in a manger, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We like it, the dog likes it and it looks good. It was delivered speedily. This size is perfect for our Border Collie as it gives room for his bedding/towels, as he is usually wet whenever he comes in.

5.0 out of 5 stars A passion for a bird, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A beautifully written account by someone almost obsessively consumed by the goshawk, yet always human, always interesting. His passion is infectious.

Price: £8.44

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden oldie, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Elgar cello concerto with Jacqueline Du Pre? Why go anywhere else? This is Elgar at his finest, especially under Barbirolli's baton.


Schubert : String Quintet in C major
Schubert : String Quintet in C major
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars sublime yet accessible, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Four stars only because I have grown up and lived with the famous recording with Cassals and Tortelier taking the cello parts. I like this and the recording quality is lovely, but the heart wrenching quality of the old recording for me is unsurpassable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Am I that old?, 11 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wonderfully, wittily written, this book took me back to childhood, listening to "Radio Newsreel" on the radio, or watching "Six-five Special" on the television. Anyone born before about 1953, who took an early interest in what was happening in the world around them will be captivated by this book. I await the next instalment of David Kynaston's history of post war Britain impatiently!

5.0 out of 5 stars Miniature Masterpieces., 11 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The King's Singers are as immaculate as ever, but The Concordia Choir suffer nothing by comparison. If you are only familiar with these three composers from Christmas Carol Services, as I was, this CD is a welcome chance to hear their wider repetoire. The accompanying notes provide the texts used, some of which are familiar, but others unknown before to me. This is the perfect marriage of music, words and performance. "I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage."

Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.99

5.0 out of 5 stars More than pictures, 11 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While much of this book's attraction is in the many well reproduced posters, the series of essays which accompanies them gives an insight into their commissioning,design, and use which enhances one's enjoyment of these often iconic posters.
