    I am hoping someone here can help me. My mother is desperate to find an album Andre made with some ladies she swears were nuns, she thought from Africa. I can't seem to locate anything like this.....does anyone here know what she's talking about, and where I can find it? Thanks. Blessings.

    @KeIemvor, there really is no need for that kind of comment. Although ironically it will probably encourage people to listen to him more. :) Having seen him and his orchestra live I wholly disagree with your comments. Good luck to you.

    This guy is a disgrace to classical music and everything that it stands for. He cheaply commercializes great works of art for the ignorant masses without any sense of actual interpretation and feeling for the music. Sickening. I advise anyone to stay away from this soulless garbage if you want to get into classical.

    Approximately 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) to the north-east of Donia's village of Kimswerd, in the city of Franeker,[9] the Black Band, a Landsknecht regiment in the service of George, Duke of Saxony was quartered. The regiment was charged with suppressing the civil war between the Vetkopers, who opposed Burgundian and subsequently Habsburg rule, and the Schieringers. The Black Band were notorious as a violent military force; when their pay was insufficient or lacking, they would extract payments from local villagers[citation needed] and on 29 January 1515, the Black Band plundered Donia's village, then allegedly raped and killed his wife, Rintze Syrtsema, and burnt to the ground both the village church and Donia's estate.[10] Seeking revenge, Pier started a guerrilla war campaign against the Habsburgs and allied himself with Charles of Egmond, Duke of Guelders (1492–1538).
