Another of my just-about-annual subs for Mixed Up Class, the classical music show put on by Romain. More than ever before, I gave a nod to the vocal/choral music that Romain emphasizes.

Boldface indicates the central focus of the album... sometimes classical recordings focus on the composer; sometimes they're more geared toward showcasing a particular artist. The distinction is often arbitrary, so -- no griping!
