The Music Library has added its 10,000th compact disc to the collection!  The ceremonial 10,000th recording contains choral works of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy.   Mendelssohn was born in Hamburg, Germany on February 3, 1809, making 2009 his bicentennial year.  He was active through the 1830s and 1840s as a conductor, pianist, organist, and composer.  Mendelssohn's choral works show a variety of influences, from the counterpoint and choral techniques of Handel to the symmetry and balance of the Viennese classical style.
