Here you will find recordings to listen to on your own. We provide Spotify playlists and Apple Music links to specific albums. They are grouped either by subject or composer.

Choose a few of the composers or topics that interested you and listen through the albums. It’s good to listen to complete albums, primarily because those who were putting the albums together grouped the music that way intentionally.

We also provide links to purchase CDs of the music on Amazon. In some instances, recommended albums or box sets are not available on streaming services, but might be something you want in your library.
