This splendid disc celebrating the glorious of Rosa Ponselle’s unique voice and interpretative powers bring excellent CD transfers of her most celebrated electrical recording made fro RCA in 1928, including the heroine’s big aria from Ernani, spectacularly well done, and the sequence of Forza recordings with Martinelli and Pinza—as well as Columbia recordings from the pre-electric period, made between 1918 and 1924—all chosen by Ward Marston as being the finest Ponselle versions of each item. The result is a wonderful gallery of perfection, beautifully transferred with the voice vividly caught.
