Richard Lewis was one of the most successful British tenors of his generation who enjoyed a truly international career. He had a particular affinity with Handel and Elgar and while he made numerous ensemble recordings, his solo output was relatively small. Regis presents two LP recordings on one CD - Handel Arias and Folksongs of the British Isles - the only recital disc of Richard Lewis available in today’s market.
