Thread Name: A Capella CDs???
Subject: RE: A Capella CDs???
Not wishing to "rant" or anything, but would point out that the Irish singing tradition is, largely, unaccompanied by instruments too. I wonder if there's any distinction between "a capella" (chapel) and, say, "alla chiesa", in that a small side-chapel couldn't accommodate many participants although a whole church could. But then, isn't the Sistine Chapel fairly big?
