Great Tenors on CD

(2-CD set) The Essential Collection takes it's first foray into classical music in this set, which features some of the greatest tenor voices of the first half of the twentieth century. Boasting of the legendary Enrico Caruso, his "Prodigy" Beniamino Gigli known as the "Peoples Tenor," Jussi Bjorling, Richard Tauber, Antonio Cortis and Joseph Schmidt, known as the "pocket Caruso" due to his diminutive stature. Some tracks, particularly Caruso's whose last records actually date from the early twenties, were electronically overdubbed in the thirties. Though this practice was frowned upon by purists, it provides us with an idea of what he would have sounded like with modern day recording equipment. So sit back, listen and enjoy the music of the golden age of the great tenors.
