The first 18 tracks come from a Chandos LP of 1983, the remainder from a previously unpublished BBC Radio recital of the same year. Three of the Strauss lieder are duplicated, as a bonus, giving two different interpretations of the items.

review extracts: for full reviews click here
“Glorious singing… she soars lustrously when she has to but she also finds a wide range of colour in these songs… vintage performances. Rachmaninov gains as much as Strauss from Cahill’s lustrous line and range of characterisation and Vignoles shows much superior pianism. Here is singing such as would surely have warmed both composers’ hearts. Excellent presentation, with notes on the music, singer and pianist, and original texts with English translations…Recommended with great enthusiasm” – Christopher Howell (MusicWeb)
