Notes & Reviews:

"Bailey's... is the most rounded portrayal to date... the set as a whole is a considerable achievement, a worthy addition to the Decca/solti/Wagner discography." - Gramophone

Penguin Guide
The great glory of Solti's first [1975] set of Die Meistersinger is not the searing brilliance of the conductor, but rather the mature and involving portrayal of Sachs by Norman Bailey. For his superb singing the set is well worth investigating. But there is much else to enjoy, not least the bright and detailed sound
