    I only got a chance to listen to the first one but it sounds better than the Columbia Masterworks CD I have. The voices have a real 3 dimensional sound. It's really a wonderful sound. I wish I could figure out how to download these two mp3s to my computer. Thanks for posting.

    With my browser, you need to go to http://www.vintageip.com/xfers/ and right click on the file you want. Then, from the context menu that appears, select "Save target as..."

    Otherwise, you can right-click on the link in bigshot's post here and do the same thing.

    If you left-click on the link, it simply plays, but you have no option to save it. And BTW these transfers sound exceedingly good!

    These recordings are very nice and clean. Unfortunately they more or less confirm that I really just don't care for Flagstad's voice (at least on recording).

    Which recording is it? You've done a very tidy job on this.

    Surely these are transfers of the 1939 RCA recordings?, not Columbia Masterworks. Flagstad did not record for them.

    Wonderful transfers, congratulations

    I'm looking forward to hearing your latest, but my electronic computer speakers have blown.
