I have always enjoyed the playing/singing on this recording. My copy is a mass-issued re-release CD from the 1990s.
However, perhaps my standards have been raised by this group as far as actual sound quality, and this one is plagued by high-end distortion and other maladies. In actual fact, higher-quality mono recordings are more listener-friendly
I saw that Arkivmusic has a print-on-demand version of this based on an earlier Japanese release:
I wondered if this would represent an upgrade and a better way to enjoy these outstanding soloists (Leontyne Price, Maureen Forrester, et.) than on the tinny, distorted copy I have. All suggestions appreciated as I would love to know of other options..or something skillfully "remastered"
