Notes & Reviews:

"Decca doesn't stint in offering some of its most outstanding performances -- the star-studded list of singers includes Joan Sutherland, Renata Tebaldi, Birgit Nilsson, Marilyn Horne, Jussi Bjorling, Luciano Pavarotti, Franco Corelli, and Nicolai Ghiaurov. The performances are clearly labeled, identifying the singers, the conductor, and orchestra, making it easy for anyone wanting to seek out the complete recording from which an excerpt was taken to do so. Decca's sound during its golden age was state of the art, so the quality is good. This collection offers just what it claims to, and makes a generous introduction to the highlights of the standard repertoire." -All Music
