Wonderful news! This has been very near the top of my recording wish list for a very long time. In fact I can hardly think of anything that I would like to hear more.

Now available for pre-order on Chandos web page:  https://www.chandos.net/products/catalogue/CHSA%205279

Booklet downloadable now:  https://www.chandos.net/chanimages/Booklets/CHSA5279.pdf

I recently decided to explore Smyth's available operas, having previously been largely uninterested in her music, purchasing Retrospect Opera's re-release of

The Wreckers [see: https://www.retrospectopera.org.uk/SMYTH/Wreckers.html]

and recordings of:

The Boatswain’s Mate [see:  https://www.retrospectopera.org.uk/SMYTH/Boatswains_Mate.html]

and

Fête Galante [see:  https://www.retrospectopera.org.uk/SMYTH/FeteG.html].

Whilst I am still in the process of getting fully acquainted with the operas, after a few hearings of each, I am finding them very enjoyable and memorable in musical content.    Very good purchases.

I await The Prison with eager anticipation.

There are substantial excerpts from this highly impressive work/ recording on the excellent and wide-ranging Spotify playlist courtesy of the NY Times -

One of my favourite British composers, it is great to see more of her music making itself heard again!

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)

The Chandos CD and digital download are now available to purchase. I have my copy but have not had time to listen to it yet.
