CD88317 Britten: Gloriana-Alderburgh Festival 2003-Brewer

This upload is in response to message 88251, in which heurtebise2401 re-loaded a 2005 performance of Gloriana from Opera Theater of St. Louis.

I am offering a 2003 performance from the Aldeburgh Festival, also starring Christine Brewer.

This is from an FM broadcast in good sound.

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
