As ever, Stacey Kent does more than justice to all of the tracks on this CD. She really is a truly remarkable singer and second to none in her performances of these great songs. So why do I give it only three stars? Because - although you won't find mention of it in the listing, it's a compilation of tracks from her earlier CDs. If you already have all of her previously-released albums, you'll find yourself with a set of duplications. Marvellous as they - and she - are, it's a bit of a marketing scam in my book.
