Even before I bought my iPod earlier this month, I’d already ripped about half of my CD collection to MP3s. Since then, I’ve been slowly ripping the other half to AACs (and re-ripping some of the others to AACs as well). A few weeks earlier, though, while starting to clean out some closet space for Jeff to hang his clothes, I had come across my nigh-forgotten collection of P.D.Q. Bach CDs. Yet now I can’t find them anywhere in the condo, while for the past two weeks I’ve been craving listening to them again.
“Virginia, fairest Virginia. ’Tis for her I sing this song.
They called her ‘Virgin’ for short, but not for long.
— “Virgo” from Twelve Quite Heavenly Songs (Arie Proprie Zodicale), S. 16°, by P.D.Q. Bach
