I actually have this already - paid a tenner for it on iTunes, which I thought was pretty good. If you don't know your classical music then download this - Lots of familiar tunes you have heard before in adverts or movie/TV sound tracks!

Excellent find and post unclecuddles

I just purchased it, and for some reason I only paid 2.85, because there was a 15p promotion discount?
#7
weird, went through at £3 for me!
#8
interesting mix - a snapshot and gives a good pop classical intro to a newbie.
unfortunately it doesnt say who composed ... eg Bach etc. which is quite crucial info ;)

I downloaded this the other day and I thought the same as you kippy (i.e not showing the composers) but once the amazon downloader plugin has uploaded the music into iTunes the composer info is there - you just have to make sure you have the 'Composer' field selected in iTunes. Which I was very happy about!! :o) Bargain for £3!!

Thanks - great deal

I don't know many of these tunes by name. I'm particularly interested in Beethoven, Mozart and Bach. Is there a lot of their tunes on there?

Arcana, there are a number of pieces by these composers. The first track is Mozart, the second track is Bach for example. I have the list on my iTunes at home. Will try and remember to upload it later if that would be useful to anyone??

If you are particularly interested in Mozart or Beethoven Amazon do also have 99 essential Mozart and 99 essential Beethoven pieces available for download. These currently stand at 5.99 but were 3 quid also a few weeks back so would be worth keeping your eyes peeled to see if it drops to this price again! No doubt if they do they will appear on hotukdeals anyway!!:thumbsup:

Just used an old £2.50 voucher I had laying around, so just grabbed this for 50p, not bad.
#26
What country are you in? This might only be available to people in the UK.

ahhh was just gonna post this but remembered to search first, PHEW id have been slated :)

anyways BARGAIN..
#31
I've just started to realise that my 5 month old daughter loves classical music - thanks Little Einsteins!! - so this should come in very handy!!
#32
Hot from me, but not for amazon downloads, got it for £6 which is still a bargain. some great tracks on this. If I were to buy again I wouldn't use Amazon though. Kept crashing, they were really helpful, but when you have to download each track individually its not so much fun! play.com do a similar collection here if anyone is interested: http://www.play.com/Music/MP3-Download-Album/4-/4110860/-/Product.html
