2010 Playlist

Links for virtually all of the recordings can be found in the 2010 Post Crescent review, and the review of late arrivals, found elsewhere on this site.

While all of the CDs on the playlists were good enough to be on my show, some deserve to be singled out with the following awards:

(*) Recording of Special Merit

(**) Recording of Exceptional Merit


Where to acquire the CDs listed here? Apart from the links in the reviews, the two main sources are amazon.com and cduniverse.com. For a cappella CDs, the two prime sources are singers.com and a-cappella.com.  For classical CDs, hbdirect.com is tops.
