Great Singer of the Week: Peter Glossop

This is very unlike me, but here is a baritone for today's featured singer:  Peter Glossop.  I'd known his name and perhaps heard him once or twice before doing today's post, but you can see why he belongs in the Taminophile pantheon of great singers.  Here, of course, is his Wikipedia bio-blurb.

Here is a movie version of his 1964 Salzburg performance of Pagliacci, under von Karajan.  Although the credits suggest it's a La Scala production.

Here is a notable performance as Rigoletto, apparently broadcast on Japanese TV in 1971.  Please forgive the poor video quality.

Undated audio-only recording of Billy Budd, under Charles Mackeras(?):
