Also included are famous arias from oratorios and sacred works such as Handel’s Messiah, Rossini’s Stabat Mater and Petite Messe solennelle, and Verdi’s moving Requiem, as well as arias from all the most popular French operas, CD 3 includes items from the original French versions of works that are also widely known in their Italian translations, such as Rossini’s Guillaume Tell and Donizetti’s La Fille du régiment. Operetta is represented on CD 6 by two of the most popular arias by Franz Lehár: ‘Dein ist mein ganzes Herz’ (Das Land des Lächelns) and ‘Gern hab’ ich die Frau’n geküßt’ (Paganini) as well as one by Johann Strauss II: ‘Als flotter Geist...Ja, das alles auf Ehr’’ (Der Zigeunerbaron). Spanish zarzuela is also included with two items on CD 4: ‘Mi aldea’ (Los gavilanes) by Guerrero and ‘No puede ser’ (La taberna del puerto) by Sorozábal.

The singers include the greatest names of the present and the past, headed by the iconic three tenors Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti and José Carreras.
