    Wow. I seriously believe that our different approaches to acquiring the set – you all at once, me one volume at a time – will change the way we both experience it. Looking at these pictures is intimidating. It’s like having all the courses of a huge meal laid out in front of you at once.

  2. When I eventually purchase OHWM, I will buy it all at once. That’s the only way to truly experience it!

    I also purchased it all at once, as it was the most economical option. Thanks for kicking this off and getting us started on this work, and I’ll chime in once in a while with thoughts from a music theorist in Casper, Wyoming.
