Two new Library acquisitions that might interest many of you:
1. Chandos Records' Opera in English CDs
These CDs offer quality performances of standard and not-so-standard repertoire in English. To find them in our catalog, limit your search to "Music Recordings" and do a search for "opera in english." If you know the specific opera you want, you can do a boolean search for [opera name] and "opera in english".
Many of them have not been cataloged yet (they just arrived this week!), so use the request feature in the online catalog, or ask for help at the reference or circulation desks.
2. Two new masterclass series on DVD
