5.0 out of 5 stars Vocal splendour 7 Nov 2013
I'm not generally a Caballe fan, finding some of here complete recordings a little uninvolved. This collection from her 1960s RCA recordings captures here in glorious voice with the bloom of youth but also the power from over 10 years performing these roles. It also includes arias from roles she did not record in the studio such as Il Trovatore, Vespri, Desdemona and Lady M. The technique is astounding, muscianship superb and a fresh, radiant golden colour that can be spun fine or given weight - at this point without audible spreading. The collection of presumably spanish conductors who support her do a decent job and the sound captures the voice beautifully. 2 CDs offer excellent value at a quarter of the cost of new recital discs by today's singers.

A very pleasing selection of arias, sung by a great soprano. What,s not to like? I recommend it without reservation.

She has the most beautiful voice I have every heard. I just can't get enough so I'll probably keep ordering.
5.0 out of 5 stars She as so much breath she takes yours away! 9 Dec 2013

Caballe's voice is simply gorgeous. She does not bring great drama to her performances, even when it would be welcomed, but the vocal control, clarity and flawless legato saves the day repeatedly.
