'Abide with me' - Butt, Dame Clara

£39.99

Product description

Although her singing of patriotic songs made Clara Butt a symbol of the British Empire, there was much more to her than that. Here she can be heard also in love songs, religious pieces and ballads of her time; some of the finest recordings made by the greatest contralto of the last century show her not just as a great and popular public figure but a very fine singer, a first rank artist indeed. Although this CD contains the same repertoire of the deleted PAST CD 7012, all transfers are new.

Abide with Me, Trees, Annie Laurie, The Minstrel Boy, Land of Hope & Glory, The Rosary, The Lost Chord, Kashmiri Song, Softly Awakes my Heart, Rule Britannia! and her other great favourites.

TRACK LISTING: The Enchantress -- O Lovely Night! -- Abide With Me -- Land Of Hope And Glory -- Softly And Gently (from 'The Dream of Gerontius' - Elgar) -- The Sweetest Flower -- Kashmiri Song -- O Rest In The Lord (from 'Elijah' - Mendelssohn) -- The Lost Chord -- Annie Laurie -- The Rosary -- Home Sweet Home -- Barbara Allen -- Trees -- Shenandoah -- The Minstrel Boy -- Swanee River -- Love's Old Sweet Song -- Handel's 'Largo' -- The Keys Of Heaven -- Softly Awakes My Heart (from 'Samson' - Saint-Saëns -- Rule Britannia!.

CD and case: CD excellent, case acceptable.
