Evening Standard

‘..the glorious lived-in quality of his (Tomlinson’s) bass conveys the cursed seafarer’s anguish more persuasively than most modern interpreters...'
Recorded at the London Coliseum between 1973 & 1977

The Sunday Times
'... this is Goodall's Ring. I doubt whether we will ever hear it's like again. Thrilling.'
The Valkyrie
Peter Moores

'... after I'd heard Reginald Goodall's Valkyrie - I just felt it had to be recorded.'
The Sunday Telegraph

Great Operatic Arias - John Tomlinson 2
The Flying Dutchman

The Sunday Telegraph

‘In the title role is the great bass-baritone John Tomlinson... His first aria superbly expounds the Dutchman’s haunted and accursed character. The contrast – patrician and plebeian – between him and Eric Halfvarson’s earthy Daland... is striking.
