Thank you, thank you so much! How wonderfully generous is this contribution you have shared with us! Yes, I saw the video clip of her singing the Francesca excerpt; always a surprise and a very intriguing performer, now she has become a canonized opera saint! (almost). There was also a beautiful video of her singing "Ave Maria" in a choir loft, when she was a "young artist" in her mid-90s! Besides, it's more fun to listen to her and the other "muses of the 20th Century" from Ponselle and Muzio up to . . . play this one safe . . . Caballé and Stratas, than it is to practice! Auguroni, mille grazie, e grazie ancora.
