Cecelia Bartoli is the name I speak of when I thought of the title. I am a fan of a style of music which I believe is becoming a lost art: opera. My favorite roles are those sung by what is called a Mezzo-Soprano, a deeper timbre and very full melodic range that pleases my ear. I have always favored the older artists from the Enrico Caruso period up to the early 1970's, and those were fewer as the years progressed. There is now Cecilia, who's voice moves me to distraction and makes my heart swell with emotion, ESPECIALLY with this piece heard hear!!!...a tribute to Maria Malibran.
The ability to stir emotions in people with her voice is a gift from God! Give it a listen!
