I have an RCA CD (issued through BMG) with 8 versions of the adagio:
for string quartet (the original), orchestra, James Galway + synthesizers, Canadian Brass, a capella (called Agnus Dei), clarinet choir, organ, and chamber orch.
Barber's Dance of Vengeance (from Medea) and School for Scandal Overture are also winners. They appear with the Adagio and his 3 Essays for Orchestra on an EMI disc with Slatkin and the St. Louis Sym.
