'There are riches galore here … Howard, as with every volume so far, brings to the recording studio the excitement of a live performance while never neglecting or unduly emphasising the poetry and sentiment' (CDReview)

Les Sabéennes – Berceuse de l'opéra La reine de Saba de Charles Gounod, S408
published 1865
1862; La reine de Saba

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
These days only Faust remains in the standard repertoire, and only Roméo et Juliette waits in the wings; the rest of the once-mighty Gounod’s operas gather dust—just one of many wrongs unlikely to be righted in the present stringent financial climate. And Liszt’s felicitous transcription of the Cradle Song from The Queen of Sheba has shared the same fate, without the financial excuse.
