Notes & Reviews:

With something of an Opera renaissance going on around the globe, this album can be seen as an entrance ticket to the spectacular world of Opera. Samples are taken from early Italian baroque masters, & mingled with French post-revolutionary nationalists. A short introduction to what many consider the love affair of a lifetime.
