Dank' you 4 die Flowers HOG. But I tink that 99 percent will have the same thoughts ... and so I translate the upper post 4 everybody:
Here it is again in a deeper & expanded version:
OH MY GOODNESS!!! [H]
Good morning Herb,
believe me: I would not have become a VSL customer in the end of 2009 if I (as a former Regensburger Domspatz) had not been convinced that the Vienna Choir will be a big and wonderful release . I am sure that what you will release there will sound fantastically. No question...
But: If now one thinks that the Choir was already announced for the end of 2006 and appears now - 4 years later - with A- and U - articulations and I sing through all the singable letters of the ABC, then I end in the matter of being absent (singable) articulations with the following result:
absent singable articulations: E, I, J, L, M, N, O, R (in German), R (österreichisch/in Bavarian;-), R (american), S (soft), W, Ä, Ö, Ü;
(Of course there are also some exotic letters like f. ex. in the French speech "the nosy words/ näselnde Wörter". A good exmaple for it is the word: Enfant (which means: Kind (deutsch)/ Child (english)" - I think you know what I want to say ...)
That's why I said: OH MY GOODNESS!!!
Now we look at the completion period till this day over again. So 99 percent of the CHOIR-interested people will ask you (or think by themselfes):
HOW LONG SHOULD THIS LAST, UNTIL THE WHOLE CHOIR IS IN THE BOX???
And if you think of 2 letters in each package including Extended versions and the price of 890 EUR you will end at a final price of: ...
... 14,240 EUR for the whole Vienna Choir.
Please, tell us whether this really is your plan!??
I AM GRATEFUL AROUND EVERY RESONANCE FROM YOU.
... By the way, with pleasure you can write in German language ...[:D] [B]
