CD Reviews

Easy access to singers of the past.
John Austin | Kangaroo Ground, Australia | 04/12/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Few Internet browsers will have heard any of the divas featured on this excellent Nimbus CD in actual performance. Those who did hear them might judge these Nimbus transfers to give as good a reminder of the special qualities of each singer's art as anything else available today. They work especially well with the earliest recordings. Listen to Adelina Patti (born 1843 and recorded in 1906) and you'll not need to make a conscious effort to endure the inadequate sound reproduction. Instead you will soon accept that listening to her can be quite easy. This was one of the first Nimbus anthologies of singers of the past. Further improvements have been made to their digital ambisonic transfer process but it continues to give the best results when transferring pre-1925 recordings. Providing additional value to this 77 minute CD is the gallery of excellent photographic reproductions of all the singers represented. I also appreciate that a decent 10 seconds is allowed to elapse between each track."
A superb historical jewel from NIMBUS

"NIMBUS records has given us another superb nugget from singers past. I had read about some of the singers on this CD and may I say that I was not disappointed.

The numbers just keep lifting you higher and higher and after a while one is just overwhelmed. Mind you the sound is not perfect which of course is expected.

If you enjoy great vocal music this CD is a must. Exceptional historical value."
