    From Gregorian Chant to Henryk Gorecki, the first living classical composer to get into the pop album charts, here is the fascinating story of over a thousand years of Western classical music and the composers who have sought to express in music the deepest of human feelings and emotions. Also available: The History of Opera.

    Overall

    I don't doubt that there is much good information here. But, for a non-musician, a person interested in better understanding the music, I found the music snippets way too short and the monologue way too long.
    Before I listened to "The History of Classical Music", I listened to "The Story of Classical Music". The latter was much more interesting and attuned to my level of knowledge, though it was written for children. I was hoping "The History" would be the next step in my education. But, alas, it was not for me.

    Overall

    I find this program entertaining and informative. Not every show. I probably won't download the current "Pro Wrestling" show. But I can't wait to listen to several segments on the new "Road Warrior" program. Being a cancer victim, I found the recent show on "Cancer" both informative and sensitive. The topics are wide ranging and well presented in the short segment format. I'm glad I tried it.
