 Happy I Found You January 24, 2013 By Christopher FOGG (HAWES, North Yorkshire) See All My Reviews "I searched in Record Shops in London to try to find this Messiaen piece - with no luck. I was told by HMV that specialist shops no longer existed - it's the Internet now. So here I am - I found you through Amazon. Your regular Emails inform me of current products available and I have to fight to resist the temptation to buy - there are so many that are "just up my street". I'm becoming a regular customer - and happy to be so. Thank you. As for the record - it's totally satisfying - as is your service. I took a risk with it because I didn't know the pieces well - just had an instinct that they would be right for me - (now that I had found them, thanks to you). They are. It's the Messiaen who touches the struggle inside all of us to find peace - anger - resignation - content - harmony - ethereal peace - all come together - through love - both religious and human. It's uplifting...as he intended. Thank you. So, happy I found you... Chris Fogg." Report Abuse
