Competition (14-17): Five birds singing or sung: what are they?

The insert credits a number of performers from the original source releases who do not actually apear on the featured tracks:
Tabea Zimmerman (mez) - Track 1.
Richard Lewis (tenor) and the Halle Orchestra with Sir John Barbirolli (track 8).
Julius Patzak (tenor) - Track 11.

NB. The listing for the competition erroneously states 14-17 when there are actually five tracks (i.e. 14-18)
