[QUOTE]Given that two series have already fallen by the wayside (Gardiner and Koopman, although I think Koopman is persisting with private means), I hope they continue, because the standard has been very high.[/QUOTE] \r\n\r\nJust back from holiday in France. Read somewhere whilst I was out there (Diapason?) that Gardiner is creating his own company to issue the Cantata recordings in full from the 2000 pilgrimage year. He has bought the rights from Universal/DG. No mention of a time-scale. One to watch for Gardiner enthusiasts.
