This is a compilation of mainly operatic arias recorded when Dame Janet was in her prime. The Elgar song was recorded by EMI and seems slightly incongruous amid these 17th and 18th-century pieces.

Handel's "Dopo Notte" was a discovery for me, a wonderful aria, perfectly sung. Also Caccini's "Amarilli mia bella" is a lovely baroque piece. Unreservedly recommended.
