Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Bizet's exotic opera 'The Pearl Fishers' is not as well known as 'Carmen' but contains a wealth of attractive music, including the popular duet 'Au fond du Temple saint' (Then from the holy shrine). This duet has been voted one of the UK's favourite tunes and whilst most people will not know the title they will certainly recognize the music. Rebecca Evans, Barry Banks, Simon Keenlyside and Alastair Miles are accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the young Australian conductor Brad Cohen who produced a new edition of Bizet's original score of 1863 for this recording.

BBC Music Magazine
Au fond du temple saint' has long been a favourite in the recording studio. Barry Banks and Simon Keenlyside, singing the aria in English... do Bizet proud. Banks and Rebecca Evans as the priestess Leïla make the most of their seductive Act II number 'Leïla! Leïla!'. And when Leïla begs Zurga to spare his rival's life Keenlyside makes 'I would speak but I cannot' into a genuine feast.
