Great CD From a Sadly Neglected Tenor
T. Dissinger | Jacksonville, AL USA | 04/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a fan of tenors, The MET or opera in general, you know that Richard Tucker has been treated terribly by his label (CBS/Sony). Thankfully the folks in Europe have partly helped the situation with this issue of his early Columbia sides. This is Tucker at his freshest before the mannerisms that inflict most singers started to take hold of him. Here is hoping that the folks at Preiser Records will also issue his fantastic Cav/Pag from the early 50's and the English-language MET recordings he was involved with. As for sound, I was rather surprised. It is the typical slightly constricted early 50's mono sound, but no pop, crackle or obnoxious tape hiss to detract from the performances. Like many of the Preiser Vergangenheit series, essential to any student of opera or opera singing."
