Emma Albani (1847-1930). Her début at Covent Garden was in 1872 and in 1878 she married Ernest Gye, son of the Manager Frederick Gye.  She sang Marguerite in Faust during Harris’s first Covent Garden season in 1888 and appeared in a number of his subsequent seasons.  1896 was her last at Covent Garden and on 26 June, four days after Harris’s death, she and Jean de Reszke gave a memorably brilliant performance of Tristan und Isolde. On the last night of the season (27 July) she made her final appearance  in Don Giovanni.   Photograph by Bergamasco, St. Petersburg.
