This disc has been able to be brought to you thanks to the recent generous donation to the RHT Archives by Noah Pikes. He was an early archivist of the RHT. This recording was re-found by him amongst his personal archives. Paul Silber and Robert Faust have re-worked the sound quality to bring it up to present day standards.
