    John Stanley: Voluntary n.5 op.VI (the famous trumpet voluntary), without repetitions and played with two trumpets

    played by Mauro Marcaccio and Sandro Pennacchini (trumpets) and Aurelio Iacolenna (organ)



    At our wedding it will be played on a trumpet (my father), a trombone (my uncle) and organ (the organist of the church) with repetitions.

    Dame Janet Baker was a great believer in opera in the vernacular and in fact, apart from when the Royal Opera House took their production of La Clemenza di Tito to Milan, confined her operatic career to the UK, many of her roles being sung in English. I usually prefer opera in the original language, but, for a performance as fine as this, I'm more than willing to make an exception. For me Baker is the finest Maria on disc and brings a Callas-like intensity and specificity to the role. The confontation scene is absolutely thrilling, but Baker is also inifinitely touching in the final scenes. Mackerras is also a much more positive presence than Perlea on the Caballé studio set and the one from La Scala.

    This 1973 performance is not in as good sound as the officially released one from 1982, which was first issued by EMI and then on Chandos. However I marginally prefer this earlier set for the Elisabeth of Pauline Tinsley and because Baker is in fresher voice.

    There is a review of this set on my blog https://tsaraslondon.com/2020/11/20/...maria-stuarda/

    Bach's Brandenburg Concertos:

    1 - 3 from this, a good set, I think, but not a favourite as such.



    4 - 6 from this set, actually one I enjoy a lot, especially for some of the soloists.
