A friend introduced Bachianas Brasileirasto me in 8th Grade. I don't know what caused me to recall it last week but I am enjoying it now in my 77th year as much as I did in my 14th year. Victoria de los Ángeles was the vocalist when I first heard it.

I enjoy them, too. The variety of instrumentation is unique. I mostly the set by Robert Minczuk and the Sao Paulo SO, on BIS. The piano soloist in #3 is Jean Louis Steuerman. Also, I have a Telarc disc by Jesus Lopez-Cobos and the Cincinnati SO (with 2, 4, 8).

It's been a while since I listened to most of them. I'll have to spend some time with them again.

Which versions are your favorites?

One of my favorite versions is sung by Bidu Sayao. It is on a CD with Brazilian folksongs that I have been looking for unsuccessfully for the past hour.  :scratch:

Currently, I have only listened to what Tidal offered which is Barbara Hendricks, soprano, and Enrique Batiz, conductor. I will now try those mentioned above. Thanks
