Another superb winner from Divine Art Historic Sound brings you 1927 recordings of "Cav and Pag" from the British National Opera Company, with soloists Heddle Nash, Harold Williams,Dennis Noble, Frank Mullings, Miriam Licette, May Blyth, Justine Griffiths and Marjorie Parry. Described as "perfect" on its original release, the set still holds its own against modern performances. And it's in English. Cav is conducted by Aylmer Buesst, Pag by Eugene Goossens.
It is not a reproduction but the thing itself. Perfect in every detail. -- The Gramophone (1927)
