Music notation

Having the iPod dock in my office is brilliant and I should have bought one years ago. I can listen to anything I want, all day! Genius.

I'm currently listening to the recording of Carmina Burana I picked up last year (the last time I performed the piece) and only listened to a couple of times. Although it's much higher quality than my old one, most of the tempos are just a hair slower, and it's driving me to distraction. Remember what it was like when we used to listen to tapes on our Walkmen, and when the batteries were just starting to die? Yeah, it's like that. With almost any other classical piece, I could probably handle it, but I know this one so well and it's just *all wrong*.
