Act II: Brünnhilde's Battle Cry excerpt : "[Hojotoho! hojotoho! heia]ha!" ... "hojoho!"

Lillian Nordica (s), Brünnhilde

Metropolitan Opera Orchestra--Alfred Hertz

February 21, 1903

[Slip: "Feb. 22, 1903"--presumably a scribal error, copied by Glackens 68, which describes the cylinder accurately. The speed matches Band 8, correctly dated by Glackens on February 21 (and does not match Band 9, the only cylinder documented for February 12, the other plausible emendation of the error).
