On the joy of borrowing CDs from the library

Borrowing CDs from the library is a Good Thing, for two reasons. First, buying music can get expensive. Second, you will eventually tire of listening to the music - with the library, you return the CDs and can get different ones.

I'm listening to a delightful CD from the library - it's Bach Arrangements, by pianist Angela Hewitt. The interesting thing about this CD is that it consists of 17 multi-instrumental works of Bach, transcribed into piano pieces. At times, the pieces sound curiously modern when brought to the piano - it's quite cool. Listen to some samples to see what I mean.
