The Art Of Singing-Golden Voices Of The Century 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This DVD has 30-plus films that were made between 1907 and 1974. Most were made in studios or for TV shows or movies, but a few are live performances. Regardless, it's wonderful to have them all packed onto one DVD. This one is for all opera fans, especially if you like singers from the first half of the 20th century.
