Pardon the cross-posting but between the two lists, someone will know the 
answers to this one. Here are the contents of a Mario del Monaco LP (complete 
with its two titles..London could never make up its mind about what to call 
compilations and sometimes used as many as 3 titles on front cover, back cover 
and labels). Tracks 11-13 are clearly lifted from complete sets c. 1955 but I 
have no idea who the other performers are..a mystery soprano or two, a baritone 
and a chorus. Anyone know? (They won't be from live recordings since those were 
issued much later).
