Kathleen Ferrier - A Tribute

The 'product' is technically excellent, considering the age of the recordings. Even without such consideration, they are more than adequate. Artistically, it is a non pareil. There is no-one like 'our Kath' - she was (and is) a real gem of a singer, if gems can sing! She was one of those rare individuals whose voice and personality, in truth, transcended all criticism, moving her lucky, enraptured listeners to tears of sorrow or joy, as the occasion demanded.

I wish I could have heard her live, but thanks to the Decca engineers and modern technology, one can still hear her immortal voice from the comfort of one's armchair.

All in all, a splendid, beautiful collection of songs, well-recorded and ravishingly performed. Kathleen Ferrier - A Tribute

Kathleen Ferrier had a contralto voice with a great purity and with a unique sound and expression. She sang lieder, opera and traditional folk songs. Tragically her career was all too short, as she died at the age of 41. It is therefore fortunate that her recordings have been remastered and are available. This particular selection includes a good range of her recordings, and reveals her voice in all of its power, emotions and musicality. She has not been forgotten because she was a woman with a very brave spirit, she carried on singing until the end, and she was a great contralto. This CD captures the best of her singing and reveals her wonderful talent.
