During this late period, Journet's high range increased to almost baritone-proportions and his vocal range spanned from a Low E to a High G. His recording career was no less exceptional: Journet was one of the most prolific basses in the 78 era.
With the exception of Feodor Chaliapin, MarcelJournet was undoubtedly the most prolifically recorded bass of the 78 rpm era.
