I'm always a little amused by listmembers who complain that no one has posted about 
one of their favorite subjects (or about a recording they've heard, or about a performance 
that they've attended).  

If you're a fan of Finley, Frank, go ahead and post about him, instead of complaining that 
others don't.  As far as I can tell, you haven't mentioned Finley on this forum in over a 
decade.  You may have mentioned Antonacci more often, but I didn't check.

BTW, anyone who's a Finley fan might want to pick up his latest recording of Sibelius 
orchestral songs:

My copy arrived yesterday.  The disc includes a number of songs that are off-the-beaten-
track, and all are beautifully and sensitively sung.  I still prefer Jorma Hynninen as a 
Sibelius interpreter, but that's no slight on Finley.
