Now new recordings of the Australian opera icon will allow Melba's voice to be heard properly for the first time. UK organisation Historic Masters has produced records made from the original metal masters of the 1904 recordings. The original recordings were lost when recording company Deutsche Grammophon cut ties with its UK parent company following World War I. Arts historian Roger Neill, from Historic Masters, will give a lecture at St Paul's Church, Burwood, on Sunday where he will introduce several recordings. ''Up until now we've only been able to hear Melba through old recordings and they make so much noise,'' Mr Neill said. ''It's astonishing, it's as though she just walked into the room.'' Melba was born in Melbourne in the 1860s. After moving to London to study, she became the star of the Covent Garden Opera House and performed around the world. Tickets for Sunday's lecture can be purchased through the Joan Sutherland Society. Visit www.joansutherlandsociety.com or phone 9789 1910 for more information.
