Product Description

CD84701 V Williams. Pilgrim's Progress ROH 97 Finlay/Howell/White

In 1997 the 125th Anniversary of Vaughan Williams was celebrated and the Royal Opera Covent Garden presented "The Pilgrim's Progress" semi-staged at the Barbican Hall in London. With a slightly changed cast ( the role of John Bunyan is here sung by Gwynne Howell) Chandos issued this work on CD, but this is a recording of the BBC broadcast of the live performance which formed the basis of the commercial issue.. I have left intact the announcements so that the cast and the background of the opera are clarified.

Best wishes Roger D Bell Lancashire England

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.
