Dean, thought that oorah! indicated a little more enthusiasm than that. So far as Carmina Buranas with best sound quality, the Blomstedt/San Francisco Symphony disc is at least arguably at the top. As far as "optimal volume" for the quieter passages goes, keep in mind that some are marked ppp and are meant to be barely audible.

At first I was quite enthused by the clarity but the more I listened and tweaked the volume I realized it was the recording and not my system distorting causing the chorus to sound harsh during the loud chorus passages. The reason I had picked up that particular one was to have a 5.1 version of it.

Thanks for the link I will check it out.

New song by The Good Natured on her MySpace page.

New song by Dev Hynes (of Lightspeed Champion) as Blood Orange (which I'm going to call O Negative Orange).

Now listening to Baroque Trumpet Concertos

I never get tired of listening to this, it’s very light and uplifting. I’ve loved things like this since the first time I heard the theme to “Masterpiece Theater,” “Fanfares for Trumpets, Kettledrums, Violins and Oboes.”
