This 12 album set had all been issued as single CDs previously except for the Schumann lieder album which was only in vinyl in the early 1970s. It is only 42 minutes long, but something which I very much wanted to hear, and, in fact, is worth the price of the set. It sounds fresh and is a great example of her voice in its prime. The interpretation brings meaningful, heartfelt feeling to the Frauenliebe und Leben cycle and the additional songs are beautifully done. They are: Widmung, Mignon, Volksliedchen, Schöne Wiege meiner Leiden, Er ist's, Heiss mich nicht reden, and Lust der Sturmnacht. Garvey is a fine accompanist even if his playing tends to be not very assertive or strong. I only wish they had recorded more lieder to make it closer to 75 minutes. It would have been wonderful to also have an album of Strauss lieder from Price and to hear her voice soar through his songs. To my ears, the least successful album in this set is the one titled "I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel to Be Free" with the Rust College choir. The choir sounds less than professional and Price's singing is not up to her usual standard. Standouts in this set are the Barber album with Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and scenes from Antony and Cleopatra; and the Falla El Amor Brujo album with Fritz Reiner which includes Berlioz' Les nuits D'été. Price and Barber's 1953 performance of his Hermit Songs cycle is given twice, on an album with the Juillard String Quartet, and on the Barber album.
