About

The first complete issue (outside of a limited edition box set collection) of a celebrated 2LP set recorded by Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge in 1962.

The songs, arias and ballads were selected to make up the kind of program which, as contemporary accounts reveal, might well have been given by royal command before Queen Victoria. The pieces range from ‘Ocean! Thou mighty monster’ from Weber’s Oberon to one of Queen Victoria’s staunchest favourites – Home, sweet home.

The colourful and fascinating original notes for the LP issue by Andrew Porter are reprinted for this CD issue.

'A remarkable and highly successful achievement … Of Miss Sutherland’s singing it is difficult to speak too highly and her programme has been admirably chosen.' - Records and Recording, 1963
