Artists and composers I always like

Some artists and composers can do no wrong in my eyes. They have shown consistent brilliance in their recorded work, and I would buy their next CD unheard. They have given me huge pleasure.

This list does not necessarily include all my favourite artists and composers. Some of my favourites, such as Gail Garnett, were one-hit-wonders. Others produced inconsistent quality. Alanis Morissette had to produce a great follow-up album to "Jagged Little Pill" to qualify, and she did - and then another!
