Don't listen to music that much. more a talking book audio adventure person. At the moment I'm addicted to The Myth Makers by Donald Cotton.

None, but I listened to all the Brandenberg concertos by J.S.Bach a couple of nights ago.

Opera! I've never had a hankering for opera music but when browsing a charity shop this afternoon I came across an opera songs CD. When I thought of all the operatic pieces I could remember I noticed that they were all on this CD. I am now enjoying the likes of the prelude from Carmen by Bizet, Brindisi from La Traviata by Verdi, La Donna e mobile from Rigoletto by Verdi, Bacarolle from the Tales of Hoffman by Offenbach, the Anvil Chorus from Il travatore by Verdi, Soldier's Chorus from Faust by Gounod, Nessun Dorma from Turandot by Puccini and many more (like they say in the promotional adverts for CDs like this).

Opera's great if you don't have to listen to all that recitative. When I was a 14 year old nerd, I spent a year trying to get into opera and saw some significant productions with great artists but had to admit that I was largely bored except for the arias.

Me, I'm always listening to Sondheim. (He hates recitative, too.) Right now I'm obsessing on his adaption of Aristophanes' "The Frogs" which I'd love to animate.

"Into the Woods" is on cable right now and I tune into every showing at 43 minutes to catch "Agony" which has become my second favorite film musical number ever. (It only beats "Singing in the Rain" by a hair and, if Kelly hadn't jumped into that puddle - the most joyous moment in cinema history - "Agony" would have won.) I had no idea that Chris Pine could be that funny. Being macho and funny at the same time is a very rare talent.

Val Doonican from the LP 'The World of Val Doonican'. It's great to listen to an excellent singer where you can make out every word of the song. Recommended tracks if you want a sample are Paddy McGinty's Goat, Walk Tall and Delaney's Donkey.

Every BBC Promenade concert, and some repeats

I'm obsessing on "Hamilton". All those Tonys were certainly deserved. On YouTube, you can find channels where it's played in continuous loop and I just leave it on while I'm working at the computer.

Never has a history lesson been more brilliant and entertaining (and funny and heart-breaking.) I can't wait until the travelling company gets here. (It will be interesting to see how it plays in England because King George III is the comic relief - very comic.)
