About

Dame Isobel Baillie [18951983] was the leading British concert soprano of the first half of the 20th century. Her style was characterised by a focussed tone, clear diction and a speech-like and natural approach to phrasing.

Her strength was in British music, including Vaughan Williams' 'Serenade to Music' (of which she was one of the original singers) and Elgar's 'The Kingdom'.

With the exception of 1933, she sang at the Three Choirs Festival every year from 1929 to 1955; she sang 'Messiah' for the Halle Orchestra annually for 26 consecutive seasons and for the Royal Choral Society at the Royal Albert Hall on 33 occasions.

She was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 1951, and was promoted in 1978 to Dame Commander (DBE).

This Heritage release showcases her artistry in repertoire with which she had a close affinity - Purcell, Arne, Bach, Handel and Haydn - in recordings that date from 1941 to 1949 with a variety of orchestras, conductors and accompanists.
