Notes & Reviews:

The recordings for this 2-CD set have been carefully selected to show the extraordinary control Gedda has over his vocal resources, and to demonstrate his remarkable gift for language. The French opera excerpts all display an appealing sense of style and excellent musicianship, both traits admired in the 19th and 20th centuries.
