 A glorious way to lose yourself in music!!! July 29, 2013 By Stephanie J. H. (Manchester, NJ) See All My Reviews "What a fabulous set of music! Each disc is a minefield of fantastic music to just disappear in. I almost can't pick a favorite disc, and it takes me a couple of minutes to decide on one! A set to be treasured by anyone lucky enough to get their hands on one!!" Report Abuse
