3.0 out of 5 stars Ryder Cup 2012, 10 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely furious at the music over most of the commentary, took away the pleasure of watching and affected concentration. If I wanted music I would have played a CD!!! Not enough actual play, kept cutting away, rather disappointed as it wasn't half as good as previous Ryder Cup DVDs. Good result though!!

Very informative, lots of information about his life and music and the times in which he lived. Pleased that he was recognised in his own lifetime.

Fantastic reproduction, the music is so moving the choir - 16 - excellent, you can hear every word they are singing, I just sit in raptures listening to it and have played it several times already, I will never get tired of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our Wii, 5 Feb 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After having such a lot of fun at Christmas on the Wii at our son's home we decided that it would be a good form of exercise for us - both in our seventies - if the weather did not permit us to go walking as we like to do,so we bought one from Amazon, it was delivered very quickly and we soon got the hang of it. Ten pin bowling first, then a couple of games of tennis, finishing up with a round of golf - brilliant!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic FM Hall of Fame, 10 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There wasn't very much on the "need to know" basis on this book beforehand as it was pretty obvious what the content would be although knowing the dimensions would have been handy.
Having the list of the top hundred most requested pieces of music in the front, then all the composers in alphabetical order was an excellent way to set out the book. I have been a fan of classical music and Classic FM for many years. Now when I am listening to the radio and hear one of my favourite pieces I go to my book and read the background.
Many of the books I have now ordered from Amazon I would not thought of paying the full price for even though they are definitely worth the money but as an OAP I have not got that much to spare so I am grateful that the prices are within my budget.

I have seen the film and I am now enjoying the book which goes into so much more detail and history. This is the second book by Hague I have read and he is an excellent historian

3.0 out of 5 stars Mag & Nunc Dimittis, 23 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dear Amazon,

I was a little disapointed as I had put on the search Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in bflat by Stanford so I assumed that when the CDs came up and I chose one that is what it would be. However, when it arrived it was in C, a completely different piece of music. When it arrived there was no delivery note or other paperwork inside so I had to get back to you to give me the name of the supplier but by that time I decided that it was less hassle to keep it. I couldn't see anywhere when I was looking for it, a list of the music on the CD otherwise I would have realised that it wasn't the right one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewing "The Pianist", 21 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I watched the DVD of this film and was so affected by the story that I had to buy the book. Having seen the DVD the book was so much more real as you could see in your mind's eye all the atrocities that took place. This is not fiction, unfortunately it was fact, these things happened and it really brings it home to you what people suffered. An incredible read, thank you for the quick delivery
