Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Domingo sings heroically. The rest of the team is excellent, not least Gwynne Howell as the minstrel who sings Che faranno i viecchi miei; but the crowning glory of a masterly set is the singing of Carol Neblett as the Girl of the Golden West herself, gloriously rich and tue and with formidable attack on the exposed high notes. Full atmospheric recording to match."
