Notes: Nos. 3 & 4 The Arcadians - This ‘fantastic musical play’ opened at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London on 28th April 1909 with Florence Smithson as Sombra. Less than two months later, Caroline recorded ‘The Pipes of Pan,’ Sombra’s Act 1 song extolling the beauties of Arcadia, and ‘Light is my heart’, another of Sombra’s songs. It formed part of the original production but was changed to ‘Come Back to Arcady’ at a later date.
 
No. 7 Patience: Love is a plaintive song - is the earliest recording of this song and the only known 78 rpm recording of it outside the complete opera sets (HMV/Victor) of Patience 1922 and 1930.
 
No. 9 Orpheus with his Lute - believed to be the first recording of this song.
 
No. 11 In the Les Contes d’Hoffmann Doll Song, phonographic history was well served through the use, for the first time, of a sound effect to simulate winding of the doll’s mechanism.
 
The record was broadcast twice in 1979, once to promote a multi-LP album by HMV, celebrating Beecham’s centenary.
 
Nos. 12 & 13 It is a shame we cannot experience Caroline reacting to others as these discs are apparently lost and gone forever.
