Sound recordings: Link to Paris Sounds for 20th century music

Please link to the Rare Music, Archives and Special Collections pages of this University’s website to read Madeline Roycroft’s extended study of Louise Hanson-Dyer’s 78 rpm Oiseau-Lyre recordings of the music of her contemporaries. The article includes nearly two hours of digital transfers of this repertoire (on SoundCloud); all but one of the recordings is complete, rather than single movements.
