All of these recordings, including the Beethoven concert aria, are of a piece. The voice is beautiful, full and steady, the diction immaculate; the dramatic commitment evident . . . Decca was easily the world leader for sonic quality of classical music recordings between c. 1955-1980, and the recorded sound here is up to those standards . . . Admirers of Jones will definitely want this disc . . .
