Notes & Reviews:

Classic Historic 1952 performances from original Decca vinyl pressings! "A finer performance than this would not be a song of earth," wrote the Record Guide (Collins, 1955) of this legendary performance which was recorded in Vienna in May 1952. "And beyond this there is Ferrier, an artist born to sing this music and singing it here at a time so close to her own death as to make this a real, truly harrowing song of farewell." (Gramophone)

"Ferrier's recording of three of the Ruckert Lieder, heartfelt and monumental... magnetically intense." - Penguin Guide
