3-CD / TT: 175:09

A CD transfer from this recording includes 15 Arias & Choruses. From the liner notes to the CD edition on Membran: This production is made up of a 'Highlights' recording from 1947 supplemented by 1948 recordings of several of the missing numbers. Why these original recordings did not lead to a complete recording (the bass aria 'come, healing fross', for example, is still missing) is not known today." Recorded at Kingsway Hall, London, England.
