Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem

Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( Recording )

15 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bartoli continues her exploration of Steffani's music by championing his last and greatest masterpiece - her first Stabat Mater since the best-selling Pergolesi recording.&quot;La Bartoli sings as enthrallingly as ever, and with this new CD reasserts her place as No.1 in the international diva firmament.&quot; - Financial Times Germany on Mission. Cecilia Bartoli&#39;s exploration of the music of Steffani continues on from her best-selling recording &lsquo;Mission&#39; with an album of the celebrated Stabat Mater alongside Steffani&#39;s greatest sacred works for chorus, orchestra and soloists, constituting the most comprehensive collection of Steffani&#39;s sacred choral music on CD. Bartoli leads an array of internationally celebrated singers including countertenor Franco Fagioli, the bass Salvo Vitale and the two young German tenors Daniel Behle and Julian Pr&eacute;gardien. Steffani&#39;s Stabat Mater is his masterpiece, completed shortly before he died in 1728. It has been described as the most powerful expression of his religious fervour and, at almost half an hour, the largest-scale, most complex and heartfelt of his compositions outside his operas. The opening solo &quot;Stabat Mater dolorosa&quot; featured on the &lsquo;Mission&#39; DVD. The album is completed by six world premiere recordings of the best of Steffani&#39;s remaining sacred music, including Sperate in Deo and Laudate Pueri. These are scored for orchestra, chorus and soloists featuring two young baroque-specialist sopranos Nuria Rial and Yetzabel Arias Fernandez alongside Behle, Pregardien and Vitale. Also amongst these world premieres is Non plus me Ligate, a seven-minute solo motet for Cecilia Bartoli. Released in the same month is an album of Steffani&#39;s greatest orchestral music &lsquo;Ouvertures et Danzes&#39; with Diego Fasolis and I Barocchisti</p>
