Analekta the Only Label Authorised to Put on the Market Luciano Pavarotti Christmas at Notre Dame

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 23, 2006) - On November 7, Analekta proudly released a new digitally enhanced to Dolby 5.1 version, available for the first time on DVD, of one of the first grand televised concerts to be broadcast internationally of the legendary tenor Luciano Pavarotti. Even before its official launch, bootlegged versions of this concert were announced on the Web as well as in print media. By way of order, the Superior Court of Quebec ordered Delta Entertainment Corporation to immediately cease manufacturing, marketing, distributing, advertising, promoting and selling of the DVD entitled "Christmas with Pavarotti" (Delta No. 82880), which reproduces in full this recital given by tenor Luciano Pavarotti. Analekta remains the only label authorised to put this recording (ANDVD 5 9113) on the market, in Canada as well as abroad.

Recorded in the spectacular Notre Dame Basilica on September 21, 1978, this concert features Pavarotti's glorious voice in pristine form, in a program of sacred Christmas songs and hymns, including Schubert's Ave Maria, Georges Bizet's Agnus Dei, Panis Angelicus and Adeste Fideles. Joining him on the recording are some of Montreal's finest orchestral musicians under the baton of maestro Franz-Paul Decker, organist Pierre Grandmaison, the choir of the Disciples de Massenet and the Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal.
