Briggs/ Filsell: Contemporary Choral Music [Vasari Singers, Jeremy Backhouse] [Naxos: 8573111]
Briggs/ Filsell: Contemporary Choral Music [Vasari Singers, Jeremy Backhouse] [Naxos: 8573111]
Price: £8.14

5.0 out of 5 stars A most rewarding listen., 23 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is choral music both accessible and heartfelt, at least to me - l'm on their wavelength. It is contemporary but in the great English choral tradition. Jeremy Filsell has 8 pieces including three Canticles for St. George's Chapel, Windsor. David Briggs a setting of the Mass, an organ piece based on Tantum Ergo, and a short choral piece. The beautiful singing of the Vasari Singers under Jeremy Backhouse sounds glorious in this music, with the organ of Tonbridge School Chapel providing the ideal accompaniment. At Naxos's bargain price this lovely disc is one to savour over and over. Buy it..

This review is from: Callas [DVD] (DVD)
As with all Tony Palmer's absorbing accounts of musicians this one provides wonderful insights into the life and career of a unique artist, with excerpts from many of her performances and interviews, many of them available elsewhere, but repetition does nothing to lessen their impact. It is gratifying that Palmer lets performers speak for themselves rather than speak for them.

The Easy Grip Strong Nail Scissors replaced some sturdy but not very sharp toe-nail scissors which l found difficult to grasp (being an aging gent) - they kept slipping. These new scissors have proved very successful and l am happy to recommend them; they do what they say.

Boys of Two Cities

Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars HOMOEROTIC STORY BOOK, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boys of Two Cities (Paperback)
This book is the last of three volumes describing the adventures of two gay teenagers, one British one American, who meet while involved in the film production business. The setting is 1980s and there is romance and drama, a lot of sex, with explicit black and white illustrations by Zack depicting their escapades and liaisons. The author clearly knows the film world and gay scene very well.
