Kathleen Ferrier was an artist held in awe and affection by numerous colleagues and countless fans worldwide and her reputation is undiminished to this day. A true contralto, whose repertory encompassed English song as well as German Lieder, her recording of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with the Vienna Philharmonic under Bruno Walter (and tenor Julius Patzak) is one of the most celebrated classical recordings of all time and has been a staple of the Decca catalogue since it was first released in 1952. The majority of Ferrier’s studio recordings were made for Decca and many from broadcast sources have also been published by Decca. They include Lieder, Folk Songs and Orchestral Songs. This collection enshrines her artistry with a comprehensive 14-CD set with a DVD.
