Notes & Reviews:

"Listening to the nearly 80 minutes of this disc was, for me, analogous to what I felt as a child entering a candy shop: Every morsel in the display case seemed to my greedy eyes equally tempting, equally mouth-watering. In just that way this sampler is a feast and a temptation (to buy more Opera Rara records) for the ears...All this and some of England's best orchestras: the Philharmonia, New Philharmonia, London Mozart Players, and Royal Philharmonic..." -Johnson, Fanfare
