Kathleen Ferrier Historical Recordings 1947-1952 on 180g Import 2LP

In the 41 years that made her life, Kathleen Ferrier became one of the best-loved and most admired singers in the world. Her voice was a true contralto - quite a rarity - not a forced-down mezzo, and her style of singing was uniquely British. Part of the individual timber of the Kathleen Ferrier voice is due to the fact that it is a natural sound with no conservatory training. At one point she began to specialize in Mahler, for many among the audience it was their first taste of the composer. It is in no small part thanks to Ferrier's perseverance that Mahler is now so popular in Britain and America. In addition to Mahler, she also tackles the works of Brahms, Bach and Handel in equally compelling fashion here circa 1947-1952
