Notes & Reviews:

This recital of Bach and Handel arias was recorded in October of 1952 and originally appeared as a mono LP; it was Kathleen Ferrier's last recording. With the great advances made in recording techniques during the 1950s and the advent of the stereo it was decided to attempt to make a stereo version of the Bach and Handel recital. This is the first international release on CD of the remarkable stereo version of the LP.

Gramophone Magazine
... the daunting task of synchronising old and new accompaniments has been carried out with undoubted success and for that all concerned deserve to be congratulated.
