Notes & Reviews:

"Eleanor Steber's 1954 recording of Les Nuits d'ete, brilliantly conducted by Dimitri Mitropoulos, has long been famous, and now sounds better than ever in this superbly remastered recording...The 'sacred arias' selections recorded in 1951, when Steber's voice was shiningly pure, have a charmingly Victorian flavor to them, and they are sung with impeccable diction. There is no better recording of the 'Creation' aria in the catalog..." -Camner, Fanfare
