Subject: RE: Origins: Frank Harte Napoleonic songs album
many thanks for the help... claddaghrecords was the winner for me... the double CD set for 18 euros and they take paypal.

I'm doing a workshop this April at NEFFA on songs of the Napoleonic era and this will help give a broader overview.

As a yank, my feeling about Bonaparte are quite mixed... we can thank him for the Louisiana Purchase AND the War of 1812.. mixed blessing there.

Things like social reforms, the discovery of the Rosetta Stone and advances in science must be seen against the vast waste of lives and resources in his vain quest to surpass Alexander the Great...   there were other generals vying for control of France, we have to wonder what would have been had he not prevailed over them.
