1907 - Baritone Titta Ruffo, who was then considered one of the great “miracles” of opera, sings Valentin’s Prayer from Gounod's Faust - in his native Italian instead of the original French, as was the custom of the time. Although this recording is 111 years old it gives a vivid impression of the rich voice which was revered as a counterpart to tenor Enrico Caruso.
