Sometimes it’s easier to hear a singer in your own language, and since many visitors to this site may speak English, I offer the following Lehmann items sung in English. Several of the selections below were recorded for the Armed Forces Radio Service or “Command Performance,” both broadcast to the military during World War II. It has always amazed me that while we were fighting Germans, a German soprano would be asked to sing German songs (albeit in English translations) for the troops. It must say a lot for the US and for Lehmann.

For just a bit of Lehmann singing and a lot of foolishness, this 1947 Duffy’s Tavern radio show is really beneath her abilities, but fun. Duffy’s Tavern
