01. No.5 “Vin ou bière”
02. No.6b Invocation: “Avant de quitter ces lieux” – “Al- lons, amis”
03. No.7 Ronde du veau d’or: “Le veau d’or”

08. No.18 “Il se fait tard”
09. No.19a “Il ne revient pas”

11. Qu’attendez-vous encore?…Vous qui faites l’endormie

Recorded in 1966 in superb ‘Decca Sound’, these highlights from Gounod’s most widely-performed opera extracts music from the second act onwards. The Soldier’s Chorus has rarely been done with such swagger, Ghiaurov is a terrifying Mephistopheles and Corelli a passionate Dr. Faust.
