Da capo - Re-uploads



Da capo

 In recent months I have received several requests for re-uploads. Rather than answering to every request separately I have decided to devote this week to a collection of requested re-uploads. The new links are at the respective pages.

If you want me to re-upload a concert previously posted here, please send me an email at tcadfael@gmail.com. Often a request is left in the comment box to the posting; comments are forwarded to me, but unfortunately without a link to the posting it concerns. That makes it impossible to identify the concert which is requested.

Enjoy the music!
