If you remixed any of the other issues, you were working with vastly inferior source material.
    You know, it's been so long I don't even recall the source, other than it was not a commercial CD, it was a digital source file. I would think the Orfeo would be the best of all of those CDs out there, but I haven't seen it in print lately. If it's still in release, then by all means I would agree that's the one to get.

    Flagstad's voice is still so extraordinarily beautiful and I don't need her to sound young to blow me away vocally. Her Isolde's Curse is monumental and magnificent. It was still at this point in her career one of the most extraordinary voices ever recorded and she gave a sensitive reading of the role within the parameters of her personality. This is still one of the most admired Tristan's ever recorded.
