Notes and Editorial Reviews

Masterly performance of a masterwork: the stuff of legend is finally heard

All together now, "At last!" The famous Goodall Mastersingers makes it on to CD. Yes, it’s in English, which may put some off, but the burnished tone and deep sensitivity of Albertio Remedios, the endless understanding of Norman Bailey’s Sachs and Goodall’s wise, expansive conducting (with no longueurs here as there occasionally are in his Ring) make this a prize issue.
