Editorial for April 2010
Published on April 1, 2010
For April our drawing/giveaway is for two titles by the superb choral ensemble The Tallis Scholars. Gimell Records will be awarding to five lucky AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers two of their most popular CDs – The Lamentation of Jeremiah, by Victoria; and Missa Malheur me bat by Josquin de Pres. (Distributed by Harmonia mundi.) Our reviewer said "You will rarely find an ensemble as carefully rehearsed or skillfully prepared for the repertory they choose to engage in…" To be eligible as a winner you must Go Here to Register, and be sure to also give us your address and perhaps something in the Comments field about your interest in early polyphony.
Here are the six lucky winners of the SACD plus 45 rpm audiophile vinyl records from GrooveNote Records – our March AUDIOPHILE AUDITION drawing. Congrats to all!: Doug Markofka, Willow Grove, PA; Scott Hitz, Erie, PA; Ronald Lyles, West Hartford, CT; Robert Gilbert, Norcross, GA; Terry Qualman, Sand Springs, OK; Lou Miranda, New Milford, CT.
April 2010 is our 134th issue, and features our recently re-designed web site for improved navigation and enhanced appearance. We’re also publishing more and more disc reviews. All of them – often over 100! – are added throughout the month as they are written and received, usually on a daily basis. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, the Archive goes back to June 1, 2005, and for all reviews by month prior to that you need to click on the Old Archive, which goes back to 2001. The Disc Index lists all past reviews.

We welcome your feedback, and we have a Reader Feedback section. Please send us your comments, and we will review and possibly post them to that section. Check back with us frequently for more reviews and news, and be sure to register for our monthly giveaway! When you do, please give us the few requested facts, and include a working Email and street address – otherwise we can’t send you your winning item! We don’t ask a lot of financial details, and we don’t share your information with anyone else.
