Re: Stravinsky - Les Noces etc – NO TEXTS!

As Mr O'Brien will probably be aware, I have complained on many occasions about the failure of record companies to provide texts and translations with their issues. This is particularly to be deplored when the work in question is still in copyright and texts cannot be found on the internet. Sadly this seems to be the case with Les Noces, where a quick Google search has failed to yield any results.
Oddly enough my copy of the Chester Music vocal score provides sung texts in German and English only, with no Russian words in sight! The Bernstein recording on DG does however come with complete Russian texts and English translation, and was released at mid-price in the CD I own. If DG can provide this information, why can't HM do so in a full-price issue?
