4 Vanzo recorded the entirety of Le Roi d’Ys live in Paris in September 1973; the short extract that I discuss here, however, is a studio recording made during the autumn of 1968. This is available on YouTube at both www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpbLuswJeh4 and www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoP-SjDH0RY (accessed 6 August 2015). The uploader of the latter clip dates the recording as 14 October 1968, but I have been unable to verify this elsewhere. A third recording (from 1958) is also available on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OY5UKD5HWA (accessed 31 August 2015).
