    Oh gosh, it's really here! I'm so proud of this tribute to your grandfather. Here's to all the brave Italian immigrant mandolinists who came here to forge a new life but kept the village dances alive so that we could continue to enjoy them. Mille Grazie! Ben fatto! Sheri P.S. I just love seeing my Grauso mandolin on the front cover!

    Top Shelf !!! Complimenti !!! Finalmente ! Someone has gotten this music right !!! Che gioia!!! Your grandfather and mine--who played this music would be so very proud of you and the work you have done....!! So glad I recalled immediately upon hearing that snippet on the podcast that itcwas Delirio D'Amore-- Mazurka by Onofrio DiBella. A staple at every midnight serenade here in Philadelphia and in NYC for over a century.. So glad I even have recordings of it which are on the Audio Dropbox as well ad the sheetmusic. So glad that Sheri and I collaborated on all of this over the last several years to help bring it all to light again and pass on the torch to future generations. Delirio D'Amore and all of the other titles on the CD are classics in the genre. "Il suo lavoro mi tocca il cuore"!! "Your work touches the heart:!!! Ad Multos Annos !!!

    Normannno Giorno-Calapristi grandson of Philadelphia mandolinist Luigi Giorno, and author of the above post. Wanted to add --All of the Mazurka and Waltz renditions are played in true "alla serenata" style--alla napoletana.... Nit often heard today ! Another outstanding feature of this work !

    Gorgeous music!

    Must admit that, at first glance, the tailpiece looked like someone took a bite outta the mando.

    Has anyone had any problems with the downloaded files of this CD?

    There are at least three tracks on mine that got cut off. For instance, Speranze Perdute is only 9 seconds long. I know all the Nonna tracks are very short but there are others that get lopped off before they are done. I emailed Mike and Barrett on their site a few weeks ago but heard nothing and just re-sent en email also to Barrett's direct email address and the web site site but have heard nothing. Usually you can re-download files on most sites after you pay but i can't seem to do that and the receipt said that the files were only available for a week or so back in June.

    I assume the CD is fine but I am talking about the digital files (mp3) downloaded.
