Notes & Reviews:

The double CD set is in the form of a two-act Grand Opera Gala, with an overture, choruses, arias, ensembles and extravagant finales. A total of 9 composers guide the listener through the early development of the 'bel canto' school of singing. What makes this album exceptional is the quality of the performances.
