Somewhere a voice is calling  [3'07]

There is an air of mystery about this song. The concept of the lover’s call coming from beyond this life is a common theme throughout this period. Composed in 1911 by Arthur F Tate, Somewhere a voice is calling was a huge hit in its day, recorded by Schipa and Tetrazzini among others.

from notes by Robert White 1995
