The Archive service is for CDs which have been deleted and where the musical content is not otherwise available.

(If a CD is scheduled for re-issue within the next 3-4 months, the message 'To be reissued on …' will replace the 'Buy Archive CD' button.)

This service offers a production-quality CDR with printed label, inlay (tray) card and, at the minimum, a 2pp booklet (including cover artwork and complete track listing), packaged in a normal jewel case.

In many instances we will provide complete printed booklets, but please note that this is not always the case. Pricing is £13.99 per CD, regardless of the original sale price of the disc(s).

The title of this CD, taken from the Granados 'colección', means, of course, 'love songs', and that is what it is—a collection of love songs. However, whilst they are all in the Spanish language, they are not all from Spain. In honour of her birthplace, Buenos Aires, Bernarda Fink includes works which should be thought of as Pan-Hispanic rather than a purely 'Spanish', so we have, in addition to those of the Spaniards Granados and Rodrigo and the Cuban Nin, little-known songs by her compatriots Ginastera and Guastavino.

These 27 songs are ravishingly sung by this Argentinian mezzo upon whom we can bestow no higher praise than to declare our belief that she is the successor to the throne of the beloved Victoria de los Angeles. There are some pieces of music and singing here that, once heard, will not be forgotten.
