Floyd: Susannah
2.  Floyd: Susannah by Carlisle Floyd
The list author says:
  "'Susannah' was Floyd's third opera and first great success.  This 'live' performance from New Orleans (1962) is electrifying, with Phyllis Curtin, Norman Treigle, and Richard Cassilly overwhelming in their portrayals."

Six Great Basses [VHS]
3.  Six Great Basses [VHS] VHS Six Great Basses
The list author says:
  "Two weeks after the 1958 European premiere of 'Susannah,' Treigle returned home to New Orleans and directed and starred in the Revival Scene in front of television cameras, and a kinescope was preserved.  Here is one of history's greatest singing-actors in one of his finest roles."

Floyd: Susannah
4.  Floyd: Susannah by Carlisle Floyd
The list author says:
  "Here is the first studio recording (1993-94) of 'Susannah,' with Cheryl Studer, Samuel Ramey, and Jerry Hadley, conducted by Kent Nagano.  The orchestral playing is superb, and the score is cleared from the various accretions acquired since the premiere.  It is a pity that other recent Susannahs, like Karan Armstrong and Phyllis Treigle, were not given the opportunity to record the work."

5.  New Orleans Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra; Werner Torkanowsky conductor; Norman Treigle bass baritone; Gordon O Brown Chorus Master; 1972 Vinyl LP 
The list author says:
  "In 1971, Treigle recorded three great excerpts from Floyd's 'solo cantata on biblical texts,' 'Pilgrimage' (which he had premiered in 1960) with the New Orleans Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra conducted by Werner Torkanowsky for the now-defunct label, Orion.  Hopefully, we will one day see its release on Compact Disc.  (Also included are various instrumental works of other contemporary composers.)"

Sojourner & Mollie Sinclair
6.  Sojourner & Mollie Sinclair by C. Floyd
The list author says:
  "This is Floyd's first comedy, and this first production (1963) of it is amazing!  Treigle is fantastic, Patricia Neway is, of course, a delight as Mollie Sinclair, and Julius Rudel's conducting is exemplary.  (With Liner Notes, for VAI, by the list author.)"
$16.60   Used & New from: $7.99

1 Act Masterpiece
7.  1 Act Masterpiece by Carlisle Floyd
The list author says:
  "Here is the 1966 world-premiere production of another Floyd opera, with Treigle haunting in the title role.  Also featured in this 'live' performance are Audrey Schuh, who is extraordinary as the young girl, Tess, and the excellent Alan Crofoot."

LSU Opera Presents: Carlisle Floyd's Willie Stark
9.  LSU Opera Presents: Carlisle Floyd's Willie Stark DVD ~ Dennis Jesse
The list author says:
  "In 2007, LSU Opera produced 'Willie Stark,' directed by Dugg McDonough and conducted by John Keene, and Newport Classic published it on DVD the following year.  It is a masterful presentation, and as a DVD 'extra,' the great composer is seen in an interview."

Cold Sassy Tree
10.  Cold Sassy Tree by Patricia Racette
The list author says:
  "'Cold Sassy Tree' is Floyd's most autumnal score, here heard in a 'live' performance from 2000.  Let us hope we will soon be given commercial recordings of his 'Wuthering Heights,' 'The Passion of Jonathan Wade,' 'Flower and Hawk,' and 'Bilby's Doll.'"
