May I add particulars to "The Musicians of the Globe"? This Early Music
group was formed specifically for the new Globe and is directed by the
superb Philip Pickett.

The two cds already mentioned, "Shakespeare's Music" and "Ben Jonson's
Masque of Oberon" will be followed by five more, all on a Philips.

The only way I benefit from the cds is by listening!

Cheers,

Just to extend this mini-thread a little further, if I may-In his
ECONOMIC AND PHILOSOPHIC MANUSCRIPTS OF 1884, Marx quotes two long
passages from TIMON OF ATHENS, Act 4, Scene 3, and says, "Shakespeare
excellently depicts the real nature of _money_."
