    I'm wondering if Ruffo recorded anything that high?

    Conversely, I'm not sure that Ramon Vinay had a C5 and he had a go at tenor, baritone and bass
    Sorta like Placimingo.

    First and last renditions have that glorious ringing high note, Melchior in his prime years 1936 and the 1973 Jean Cox is very nice, he has many 1970s Bayreuth Rings available at operadepot.......

    Svanholm 1956 very late in his career, still a brilliant tone up top......

    Suthaus 1952 running on empty, sounds tired late in the opera, this is hopefully an off night

    Cox is also Siegfried on the 1968 RING conducted by Sawllisch, issued by Myto. He may not be the second coming of Melchior, but he's a vastly underrated and under-recorded Wagnerian tenor.
