Hugh the Drover  is a ballad opera written by Ralph Vaughan Williams, on a libretto by Harold Child. It was premiered in 1924. Shortly afterwards, this abridged version was recorded (in 1924 or 1925). This is not an LP of mine, but I have a recording of it. Unfortunately, I don't have a good scan of the sleeve text. I was unable to find any information about the original 78rpm recordings on the internet. There is little known about alto  Nellie Walker  but she can be heard on many records,...

Almost every important pianist and composer from the beginning of the last century recorded piano rolls. Particularly when developments were such that dynamics, pedal operation, etc. could also be recorded on the roll, recording rolls became more interesting than recording 78t. records for a mechanical horn: the sound quality of a real piano was of course nicer than the tinny sound of the early piano recordings. There is a wonderful site on the history of the  reproducing piano . And in...

Belcantodisc was an American label with historical recordings from the Golden Period of opera, with emphasis on the bel canto style.  A somewhat sloppy record, with some language errors on the cover, and little information about the recordings. For example, on the second track, there is a singer who does participate but is not listed. Furthermore, there are no labels, matrix numbers and recording dates mentioned, unfortunately, so that was some work to get all the information, as far as...
