Alqhai & Alqhai wrote me a mail and kindly asked me to remove the links to their works. That I did. 
But there's a chance you can listen to their astounding work at their site, so pay them a visit. Alqhai & Alqhai

(…) It is not surprising that this mixture of pain and pleasure became so highly appreciated by mid 17th century Italy, at the same time exultant and prudish, outshining though fading away. According to the Catholic Counter-Reformation ideas, there was no pleasure without guilt, nor delight without punishment. True Love can only be but the reward to soul torturing. Its sweetness increases with the bitterness of previous suffering. Carnal Love is the forbidden drug, hence mysterious and irresistible, ever-lastingly desirable. We will see it served in all possible tastes: delightful in Landi; woeful in Bovicelli; joyful in Frescobaldi; hopeful beyond hope in Monteverdi; piquantly erotic in the image of Mary Magdalene standing by the Cross.

I'm resurrecting here some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real project behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the tide. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...

Hello once again.

I'm afraid I have to repeat my message a week ago... We like you like our Cds, but please remove these links of our CDs, that are available at!

Thank you,
