MCCORMACK, John: McCormack Edition, Vol. 9: Victor Talking Machine Company Recordings (1920-1923)

This volume of the Naxos McCormack Edition charts a chronological survey of recordings made in Camden, New Jersey, between April 1920 and September 1923. Two outstanding examples of the great tenor’s art are here; the famous recording of Handel’s O Sleep! Why Dost Thou Leave Me?—a miracle of breath control and tonal beauty—and Schumann’s The Singer’s Consolation, an outstanding contribution to Lieder on record. There are four collaborations with Fritz Kreisler, some superb examples of popular songs, inimitably sung, and the bonus of three recordings that were never published in the singer’s lifetime, two of which, Rachmaninov’s To the Children and Merikanto’s A Fairy Story By The Fire are now made available commercially for the first time
