A vocal feast for lovers of bel canto. Nimbus has collected Donizetti's most popular arias in versions made by Golden Age singers. The earliest tracks date from 1906; the most recent, buffo bass Salvatore Baccaloni's delightful "Udite, udite, o rustici," from 1932. In between come a gallery of famous singers of yesteryear, including the likes of Luisa Tetrazzini, Giovanni Martinelli, Marcel Journet, Mattia Battistini, and Lucrezia Bori. Beniamino Gigli and Ezio Pinza are heard in the Tomb Scene from Lucia di Lammermoor; bright-voiced soprano Toti dal Monte joins Tito Schipa's lyric tenor in "Tornami a dir che m'ami" from Don Pasquale, among many other highlights. Vocal buffs will already have many of these items in their collections, but this convenient package invites duplication and exploration. --Dan Davis
