I AM A FRIAR OF ORDERS GREY (W. Reeve)
with orchestra conducted by G.W.Byng
HMV B1474 recorded 17 October 1922
The famous Australian bass-baritone Peter Dawson (1882-1961) made over 1800 recordings over a period from 1904 to the introduction of stereo in the late 1950s; mostly he sang robust parlour songs and items from light opera, though he did include the occasional Grand Opera number. Here is just a handful of favourite recordings from his long career. (Mouse over the list for notes on each record.)
