The discography of Oliver Davies

As a colleague and friend who worked with Oliver on each and every MOMH Image of the Month as they used to be called, I would like to add, in addition to his own discography, the exquisite Aria di Pantomima from Gluck’s Alceste which he recommended for a wedding and which I shall always associate with him. I remain indebted to him in so many ways.
