Isabella Stewart Gardner (from the museum's website)
If the ongoing Beethoven discussion group has stimulated your interest in listening to chamber music from Beethoven and other composers, I have a lead for you. The Isabella Stewart Gardner art museum in Boston has the wonderful habit of putting its chamber music performances on its website as free MP3 downloads for everyone.
Lots of Beethoven to listen to, and I particularly recommend the performance of Opus 69, the Cello Sonata in A Major, by Laurence Lesser and Russell Sherman, which I was turned on to by my favorite classical music blog.
I think I will put the Missa Solemnis in the car to go along with our quartet listening.
