Hempel recorded the aria 3 times in 1911, including an unpublished version.  
Marcella Sembrich did the same stunt as well.  

The beauty of the Heim recording is the immediacy despite it being a 1913 
recording and also the speed for those who like it, though as Art pointed out, 
it is pitched a step high.  None-the-less, this is the first time the Heim version 
has been put on the internet, or in electronic form, the record itself was 
brought in from Germany by a collector/friend for the purpose of mastering it 
for a cd project I was working on but never completed.  He has the only 
known copy to my knowledge.

Idia...I sent you a link via e-mail.  Once again, unfortunately these long links 
do not completely automate and you have to copy the entire thing and place 
it in your browser search bar.  Otherwise, if you do a google search for Music 
Antiquarian Blog the site comes up.

Melitta has had nearly 500 hits since this morning....she hasn't been this 
popular in years!

Best,

B.
