Comments:- Neither Walhall nor Mike Richter provide information about the origin of the audio recording except the years 1947 and 1951. It is therefore a composite recording, but which parts were recorded in which year is not stated. It seems in fact that it is a recording of the soundtrack of the German version of Powell's and Pressburger's film. According to the online discography of Offenbach's stage works (hyperlink in CHLORLINK.HTM) «Rudolf Schock schrieb in seinen Memoiren, Josef Metternich und er seien nach täglich acht Stunden Synchronarbeit 'wie Betrunkene aus dem Studio gewankt'».
