Quite a while ago, someone requested a Semele conducted by Rene Jacobs starring American soprano Janet Williams as Semele. Unfortunately, I don't have that performance; however, this upload does feature this delightful yet little known singer in the title role. The other strong feature of this performance is the also under-recorded American mezzo Patricia Spence as Juno. If you're allergic to boy sopranos, I encourage you to skip through Cupid's aria.

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.
