if u r speaking of the met broadcast with moll, jerusalem, and meir(sp?), then the amfortas was the GREAT BERND WEIKL!!!!!!
he has made 2 recordings as sachs, 1 as der hollander, 1 as beckmesser, a fantastic rigoletto, and a don giovanni. there r also several recordings of him singing wolfram.
also, he has made a recording of des knaben wunderhorn, a disk of verdi arias, and a disk of german operetta. (unfortunately, his don giovanni is spoiled by the wretched conducting of the evil sadistic solti)
>PS I'm fairly new to this whole list concept, and I am not receiving my own posts. Is there some way I can change the setting so that I, too, receive them.
HMMMM. i dunno. since ur on the list i don't see why ur not receiving them. do u have more than one email address????
Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God, but never without belief in a devil. Usually the strength of a mass movement is proportionate to the vividness and tangibility of its devil. When Hitler was asked whether he thought the Jew must be destroyed, he answered: "No.... We should have then to invent him. It is essential to have a tangible enemy, not merely an abstract one." F. A. Voight tells of a Japanese mission that arrived in Berlin in 1932 to study the National Socialist movement. Voight asked a member of the mission what he thought of the movement. He replied: "It is magnificent. I wish we could have something like it in Japan, only we can't, because we haven't got any Jews."

Perhaps a modern society can remain stable only by eliminating adolescence, by giving its young, from the age of ten, the skills, responsibilities, and rewards of grownups, and opportunities for action in all spheres of life. Adolescence should be a time of useful action, while book learning and scholarship should be a preoccupation of adults.
