Meg, thank you for the offer. The site looks great and easy to manage.

I also noticed that this website includes a Classical Music Library with is offering a free download of the week: Mozart's Serenade No. 11 in E flat, K. 375. Mozart was Barth favorite composer, and he states that he began each morning by listening to Mozart. Barth writes of Mozart, "he has produced in almost every bar he conceived and composed a type of music for which 'beautiful' is not a fitting epithet" (§ 50 God and Nothingness. In CD Volume III/3, 297). Many thanks!
