grains of sand

Speaking of musical uses of Poe: there is a group called Propaganda which has recorded Dream within a Dream. The female lead has this wonderful northern european accented voice which is wonderfully suited to the poem.

In fact I use this recording as my test for a good sound system ;) **CV

I use The Roches or Anonymous 4 for vocal tests, and a recording of The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams for orchestra --

Yours sounds more interesting...

I like it because I know how I want it to sound. So the sound system becomes more personal than professional :) I'll have to look and see if I can find what you use and take a listen :)
