Westminster Legacy VOL.2 Westminster 65CD


This isn't a review; it's just a list. This remarkable collection's cost, alas, makes it too rich for my blood. (Happily, I already own about half of these recordings as either CDs or LPs.) For those better off, however, treasures await--along with some insight into what a profoundly artistic and sensitive entrepreneur with deep pockets (viz., James Grayson) could do simply by putting his mind to it and engaging a like-minded technical and production staff to help him realize his dream of recording important but neglected European artists in great and varied repertory. Westminster Records stands as a perpetual rebuke to all those malefactors of great wealth who can think of nothing better than to produce smutty movies or purchase entire political parties.
