Rose Anne Creffield - Special Recording, 1957 (His Master's Voice Special Recording)


 
Here's a recording that will interest next to no one, although those in the know should find it fascinating. Perfect!
 
My first cousin once removed (mum's cousin) singing, accompanied by her father, aged 11.  

No reason to share, you say, and you'd be right. Except, as I only just discovered, she went on to become, well, more professional.  Mum did mention she was 'quite good'.

I'm uploading this for the interests and archives of the Glyndebourne Performance Art Theatre in Lewes, UK, where Rosanne Creffield sang Mezzo soprano in the Chorus 1969-70.

Rosanne Creffield on Spotify with Caballé (you know, the Barcelona with Freddie Mercury one) and José Carreras (another possibly familiar name) amongst others.

This recording is another thing altogether. Sweet, youthful, beautifully flawed, and an enchanting historical document.
