Britten: Gloriana - June, Hillman, Hammond-Stroud, Garrard, Vyvyan; Mackerras. London, 1973
Listen to a Sample:
- In contrast to singers like Joan Cross and Sylvia Fisher - both of whom were legendary in the title role - Ava June brings a well-needed touch of glamor and physical beauty to the role of Elisabeth I.
- Special Kudos to the chorus, who acquit, what might be the most difficult opera chorus Britten ever wrote, with ease.
- None to mention.
