CD 1 / Act 1 has been good. I particularly liked the Angel and there were some unusual sounds 8) .

I got to the end of Saint François D'Assise, found it enjoyable and an interesting insight into the religious way of thinking 8) .

It has been years since I listened to this recording, and now I remember why Siegfried was always my favorite part of the Ring. It is great to meet this music again after so long :)

ROH Covent Garden will be presenting a double bill of the original one-act versions later this year - at a time when I'm already going to be quite busy - so I'm trying to decide how much I want to go. :-\

I'll listen to Wagner's Siegfried (Karajan recording) too, since today is the composer's birthday:
