1. I still buy CDs and rub two sticks together for fire...
...but I will furnish whatever links I can find. Here are some to start with, mostly for jumping-off points, as they contain many links. I haven't really done comparison shopping.

http://www.classical.net /

http://www.classical.com /

http://www.classicsonline.com /

http://www.emusic.com/genre/279.html

Remember to check the classical music label websites, too. Below you'll find Chandos and Deutsche Grammophon.

http://www2.deutschegrammophon.com/home




I'm sure you're aware that Amazon, known for books, music, DVDs, and almost everything else at this point, also offers MP3 downloads of classical music. I seem to recall it runs less than a dollar (U.S.) per track.

3. I was looking up something on a British website...
...specifically the one for Harry Christophers and the Sixteen, and they had a selection of recommended links as well. Again, I have no particular opinion on these, but add this to your bookmarks:

4. I use i-tunes.
I love it because I can choose from a variety of performances. I teach piano lessons too, and my students can download performances of pieces they're studying, which they love!
