Information from owned LP & CD and Georges Lobo. The CD re-issue is a pure delight. Another proof that Cape was the first in the 50's to interpret the music of that period with an approach very close to what we hear today. It is sad that nearly all of his production is no more available since the late 60's. This CD deserves a wider distribution with more explanatory notes and credits to performers especially the soprano and contralto (that appeared on the LP).
