This meditative, immersive film is a tribute to the astonishing work and achievements of naturalist, inventor and pioneering filmmaker F. Percy Smith. Smith worked in the early years of the 20th century, developing various cinematographic and micro-photographic techniques to capture nature's secrets in action. Working in a number of public roles, including the Royal Navy and British Instructional Films, Smith was prolific and driven, often directing several films simultaneously, apparently on a mission to explore and capture nature's hidden terrains.

Recorded in 2006 at The Mountain Arts Center in Kentucky, it features all his greatest hits including When a Man Loves a Woman, Warm and Tender Love, Take Time to Know Her, It Tears Me Up and many more. Serves as a wonderful memory to Percy Sledge who passed away in April 2015. When A Man Loves A Woman originally reached #4 in the UK charts when it was released in 1966 but reached the #2 slot when it was re-issued in 1987 having been used for a Levis 501 advert. Percy Sledge, the great American R & B and soul performer will forever be associated with this, one of the world's most enduring love songs. Percy's unique voice made him one of the key figures of deep Southern soul during the late '60s. Not only did he sing deep soul, but he was among the pioneers of country-soul, singing songs by Charlie Rich and Kris Kristofferson in a passionate style.

Callas first sang Bellini's Norma in 1948, when she was just 25. She went on to perform the role of the heroic, but vulnerable Druid priestess -the ultimate embodiment of bel canto - more frequently than any other. In this second studio recording her conductor was again Tullio Serafin (he originally tutored her in the role in 1948), and the venue was again La Scala - where the opera was premiered in 1831. By 1960, Callas brought a wealth of new nuance to her interpretation, and she is aptly partnered by the creamy-voiced Christa Ludwig (in a rare recording of an Italian role) and the towering Franco Corelli.

This is the first of Callas's two complete recordings of her signature role, the druid priestess Norma, in which she has remained unrivaled for 50 years. It captures her voice inits imposing early prime, while in the two famous duets for Norma and Adalgisa she is partnered by Ebe Stignani, generally considered the greatest Italian mezzo-soprano of her era. The conductor is Callas's mentor Tullio Serafin.

This 1979 Norma features Renata Scotto in one of her very best recordings. She is in gorgeous vocal estate, with much exquisite pianissimo singing above the stave. Surprisingly, Scotto is one of the few native Italians to essay this most difficult bel canto role, and she brings an innate understanding of the text and music .
