This disc is compiled from three BBC broadcasts between 1947 and 1951 singing with three of the most famous British conductors of the era. Kathleen Ferrier's was a natural, unforced, God-given voice, allied to a depth of musical understanding that was equally natural at the same time as being enhanced by a musical curiosity arising from a born singer. This disc amply illustrates Ferrier's artistry in a manner that speaks directly to the listener.

Kathleen Ferrier – Contralto

BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent
Halle Orchestra conducted by Sir John Barbirolli
