I recently borrowed this recording of Tippett's Midsummer Marriage from my library,but
on a different label. It was taken from a BBC radio broadcast, and unfortunately has the voice of
a commentator interfering regularly with n explanation of the plot .
Does the version you have feature this ? Too bad, because it's a really interesting opera .
I hope Decca will reissue the superb Colin Davis studio recording, which was on
Philips, a label which is now unfortunately defunct . If, so, grab it !
