Arthur Sullivan, composer, sent a message to Thomas Edison via phonograph cylinder record.

The Vulcan Cylinder Record Company proudly presents Sir Arthur Sullivan, as he sends a message, in 1888, to Thomas Edison via the wonderful new technology of phonograph cylinder record.  Recorded at a party organised to introduce the ‘Perfected’ Phonograph to London Society, he is both excited and fearful of this great new world of sound that Edison has made available.

This is the third of our Famous Voices recordings, as Sir Arthur joins PT Barnum and Florence Nightingale – just part of our exciting range of material, both old and new.
