Notes & Reviews:

Of 'The Power of Love,' Bonynge writes, "This little record has been in my mind for many years. During my student days in London in the 1950s, I collected many 19th century programs, many piano scores and hordes of songs from popular operas with their illustrated music covers, so the operas of Balfe and Wallace have long been familiar friends. Many of these operas were exceedingly popular in the 19th century and were sung by very famous singers. Changing taste and new works have pushed these old warhorses into the background, so today they are little more than a curiosity. But they were once the popular music of the day."
