5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome find, Oct. 28 2000
This review is from: Tosca (Sung in English) (Audio CD)
Being a fan of Jane Eaglen, I must admit that I was swept away with her in this recording. This is probably the best performance one can find of her, at this point. Part of a series of Operas sung in English, Tosca is a good recording. All were understandble most of the time, but when it comes to opera, I'm finding it's not whether or not one can understand what one is singing, but how well they sing it. Did not expect it to be as well done. Many people would turn their nose to the language change. Who care! Ms. Eaglen is marvelous here as she is in other venures. Particularly in the second half. Highly recommended!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Culture and Values, Oct. 28 2000
Very well thought out book, which could be used as a neat reference for all who work in the helping profession. Ms. Pengra establishes herself as knowledgeable in her assesments of people espeacially ones with disabilites. She cuts through the analytical language making it understandable for all. Thus, giving them the ability to apply towards one's own daily living. Highly recommended.

Well, let's see. This is once again a recommendation to all 'Vicar' fans! Love is finally professed to the Vicar. A situation I think could very well be brought back if the series continues. I will not say who, but it's pretty obvious. In the second episode, the residents of Dibley realize how much the need each other. Hand - Cuffs anyone? C'mon! complete your collection. This one is worth it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Eat and get married, Aug. 25 2000
Wonderful set of shows. Christmas is a time one does not go on a diet and the Vicar shows why clergy never think of such an idea. The Easter Bunny episode bids us farewell to a character but not before she gets everyone in the end. At last finally, Hugo and Alice DO something about their infatuation. Which causes some father and son difficulties. Sit back and enjoy a sweet, sweet show I've grown to love!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bonking Good!, Aug. 25 2000
Not as funny as the wedding of Hugo and Alice, but there are snippits of hilarity. Too bad Simon turns out to be a real jerk. The first episode really touches upon the humanity of clergy and how one's needs get in the way of what's better-off for the whole community. The wise man bit in the second episode is down-right funny! Alice shows some intellect, finally . . . but one of her scatter-brained thoughts can only go so far. Would highly recommend this to all of us "Vicar" lovers.
