The Art of Beverly Sills

CD 1:

1. Thomas: Mignon: "Oui! pour ce soir... Je suis Titania"
(from the "Scenes and Arias from French Opera" 1969 recital disc)

2. Massenet: Manon: "Allons, il le faut...Adieu, notre petite table"

3. Massenet: Manon: "Je marche sur tous les chemins...Ah, vous etes vraiment…Oui dans les bois"

NOTE: The DG booklet and back cover incorrectly list the second part of #3 track above as "Obéssons quand leur voix" which is the traditional "Gavotte" of the Cours-la-Reine scene.

What is actually on the CD is the alternate Fabliau "Oui dans les bois" which Sills recorded as an appendix to the complete recording. DG has corrected the error on its website.
