I came home from walking the dog and found that the postman had left me the latest from Marston Records, a two-CD set of Eugenia Mantelli, Marianne Brandt, Guerrina Fabbri, and Rita Fornia. It is just on time, having been originally announced for May.
The previous Marston release was the magnificent second installment in the ongoing Supervia series. Was there ever a more charming, adorable, sexy, and communicative singer?? This volume includes cuts of the Cherubino arias that sound better than what's on volume I, some zarzuela, two arias from El Amor Brujo, and, possibly best of all, some songs for children with spoken introductions. You must hear this set, truly.
The mystery release originally slated for May has been postponed until August. I'm dying of curiosity!
