The gem of the set is "Dido and Aeneas", featuring the sublime Tatiana Troyanos as the ill-fated Queen and led by Charles Mackerras with dramatic urgency. Troyanos' "Ah! Belinda" languishes as it should but never drags, her voice lovely, her low notes carrying alto-like depth and strength. Her touching final scene is excellent.

A set of grave beauty that stands up well against latter-day recordings.

A superb performance of Ode to St Cecilia's Day.
