Ambrosian Opera Chorus & London Symphony Orchestra, Richard Bonynge

Recorded in 1966 in superb ‘Decca Sound’, these highlights from Gounod’s most widely-performed opera extracts music from the second act onwards. The Soldier’s Chorus has rarely been done with such swagger, Ghiaurov is a terrifying Mephistopheles and Corelli a passionate Dr. Faust.
