The legendary recording of the Pearl Fishers Duet, with the thrilling voices of Jussi Björling and Robert Merrill. The RCA Victor Symphony Orchestra is led by Renato Cellini.
Recorded in 1950, this version of the great Bizet duet is unarguably a classic, and still the finest version around.

My video seeks to commemorate the lives of these wonderful singers: they are true legends, and should never be forgotten.

'"Au fond du temple saint...was always top of listener's polls for the BBC's Your Hundred Best Tunes. It was also No 1. in ABC's "The Classic 100 Opera", a poll in which Australians voted for the one moment in opera they could not live without.'(Wikipedia)
