A groundbreaking Decca album celebrating the glory of both bel canto and the voice of Sutherland in her prime, long unavailable on it's own, reissued complete with a booklet introduction from Richard Bonynge. More than a quarter of a century has now passed since Decca remastered ?The Age of Bel Canto? among the first releases in it's ?Classic Sound? series of classic albums from the label?s history. While the contents of the album have reappeared complete or excerpted in one or another tribute to Sutherland and her art, it is past time for a new generation of record lovers to appreciate once more how curiosity, research, technical finesse and dedication all contribute towards the making of a classic of the gramophone and not just another recording.
