The sacking of Chichester Cathedral in December 1642 caused all cathedral services to be suspended. They were not resumed until the restoration of the monarchy in 1661. The choir was re-formed in the same year, but the appointment of a new organist did not occur until 1668.

Many thanks for this masterpiece to our friend Jean-Luc
A gifted conductor, Josef Krips returned to the Vienna Opera just after World War II (as a Jew, he had had to leave in 1938), and renewed its tradition of Mozartian performance. Many of the finest qualities of this 1955 studio recording emanate from him and his players–the tempi are well judged and the musicianship marvelous. The singing is less consistent. The lightweight Belgian soprano Suzanne Danco is underwhelming as Donna Anna, while the skilled baritone Walter Berry is again too slight for the bass part of Masetto. Even the lovely Lisa Della Casa–who sang Elvira regularly onstage–often sounds challenged by the role here, despite lovely moments. Italian Cesare Siepi is a bass Giovanni (rather than the expected baritone), and though this too throws the vocal balance out of kilter, he’s a charmer, all right. Fernando Corena’s Leporello and Hilde Güden’s Zerlina are both topnotch, Anton Dermota’s Ottavio cool but conscientious. This is an excellent memento of Krips, but a better all-around and similarly vintage option is Carlo Maria Giulini’s EMI recording from 1959, still arguably the most satisfying account of the opera. –George Hall
