Don't hurt your computer!! Serenity now! Serenity now!

If that happens, you will just have to page whore on a daily basis.

But it will never happen.

Although it's a bit concerning that since I joined the board 7 months ago, Navneeth and myself are the only "new" members in 7 months who post on a regular basis. Hex is another new one that posts, but doesn't post too frequently.

That is what I am trying to "ask" the radio station; their criteria. I see I may have struck a nerve.

I'm back...finally this week is almost over!
To answer your question OT - Hm, big M? I like sheep too, but to be honest, I haven't really listened to it in years! Maybe I'm not worthy to be HandelFan after all. It all depends on which version you're talking about, I guess. I'm not so much a fan of the old mega-size Mormon Tabernacle-style versions. I like it better with smaller ensembles and period versions, even when the instruments sound a bit creaky ( but for me that's part of the fun with period performances. Anyway I'm basically a musical ignoramus so a performance has to be pretty bad for me not to get some enjoyment out of it) Maybe subconsciously I have a teeny bit of a disconnect with the subject matter, not being of that persuasion, although ironically one of my favorite bits is I know that my Redeemer liveth...and the effect of "WONderful!!! COUNSellor!!!" You can't help getting swept up in the sincerity of it. Then of course there's "How beautiful are the feet.." I should dig it out and spend an evening with it soon. (I moved house over a year ago and half my CDs are still in boxes in the garage...yes I'm lazy).


Prokofiev = unfair to wolves. I guess he liked sheep too.

HandelFan,

I just want to confirm, for the record, that you are not another one of OT's aliases.

Now I am suspicious of anyone from a California address. :rofl:

Definitely not his alias (unless he has some serious gender confusion issues... :P )

Hmmm, I was wrong yet again on the gender issue. Sorry HandelF, I thought you to be male. :oops:

Although I'm sure that wouldn't stop OT. :P

RC checks in once in a while, and Flying Sorcery just came in out of the thin blue air.

Maybe more out of the wild blue yonder!

My excuse: not enough time to do all the things I'd like to do each day. I can't seem to find/make the time to post as often as I'd like. And, truth be told, more often than not I have never heard of the musical pieces being discussed. But I can be impressed easily, so I guess that makes me a wonderful audience.
The only instrument I play is my CD player/computer (and the listening posts at Borders). Oh, I do have 2 daughters who play piano, so I guess those who can't do become a :#1: fan.

Hi, FlyingS! Long time no seehearspeak! I know what you mean about the lack of discretionary time: I've long thought that mothers ought to be issued a 30 hour day. It would help ever so much. :mrgreen:

FWIW, as they mature and launch your personal time increases. :whew: There are several of us here on the board who just listen. I even try to play the guessing games and I even guessed right, once. It was an event.

Excellent! I approve of this activity. What recording is it? I've got London Symphony Orchestro/Colin Davis (from the sixties, I think) and Hogwood & Co.

This board needs a singing emoticon. There's one that's called "sing" :sing: but it looks more like "who, me?"/whistling-while-trying-to-look-innocent.

I like sheep, too. They're both useful and delicious. Merino or Corriedale yarn. (Sorry, Dai, NZ and Aussie and Irish and Scots sheep grow scratchy yarn.) Sheepsmilk cheese. Roast lamb with rosemary and garlic, yum. Lamb kebabs with tzatziki sauce. Tandoori lamb. Mutton posole.

Oh, you meant the music. Yes, the Handel sheeps are also very nice.

You forgot to mention sheeps' eyeballs :shock: - considered quite a delicacy in some places!

Depends where you get your wool from, Selma. There is some very fine stuff coming out of the South Island these days. It ends up in Saville Row suits.

The Big M suffered during the 60s & 70s from Directoritis. Countertenors instead of women, boys instead of women, "authentic" versions (ignoring all Handel's rewrites) and the result was a fine display of directors' egos. I suspect modern versions have got over that, since Directoritis seems to be fading (unless I'm getting used to it!) so I should look one out. At present, I prefer my very ancient and no longer sonically acceptable version from 1946 (I think), by Sir Malcolm Sargeant and the Huddersfield Choral Society. It has an absolutely superb choral version of "Their Sound is Gone Out", among a host of excellent performances; and of course, The Sheep, in a nice lively performance.

Aussie wool may be scratchy, but Aussie lamb on the BBQ is to die for.

Daughter #1 is taking a textile class this year - she's hoping to intern on a sheep ranch, or better yet, an alpaca ranch.
