Be careful what you wish for! OK, the first three are off limits but, although it will be a good many years yet before Sorabji's entire output has been recorded and, even when that stage has been reached, the likelihood of its being issued in boxed set format is as vanishingly small as indeed it should be(!)...

What if Beethoven had lost his sense of smell instead of his hearing?
"Music can inspire love, religious ecstasy, cathartic release, social bonding, and a glimpse of another dimension. A sense that there is another time, another space and another, better universe."
