Mendelssohn's birthday; Decca's demise

I'm remarking on the recent and current "headlines" in my blog roll. It lit up with Mendelssohn's name for a couple of days, and now, found courtesy of Letter V, Norman Lebrecht writes about the demise of the venerable Decca label.

My last playlist post happened to be mostly Decca, and my opera recording collection is full of classic Decca sets.
