Two vexing questions concerning the legendary Irish tenor that I hope someone can address:
1. Was any sound recording made of McCormack's creator performance as Gritzko at Monte Carlo in 1923 in Mussorgsky's unfinished opera La Foire de Sorochintzi (Sorochinsk Fair)?
2. Is any sound film available of McCormack singing Franck's "Panis Angelicus" at the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin's Phoenix Park in June, 1932? My information is that British Pathe filmed this event, but I have not been able to put hands on a film copy. Evidently, the Park attracted over one million attendees at that time, and the Mass during which McCormack sang was broadcast by radio all over the British Isles.
