Marisa Galvany (Re-done)

Marisa Galvany, one of the most exciting artists, in a podcast
featuring material from Aida,Norma,Tosca,Traviata, and
Anna Bolena.

          This is a re-doing of a previous Galvany podcast, with
       the deletion of three items, but the narration remains the
        same, so references to Macbeth, Ernani, and the Aida
         "Ritorna Vincitor"  are to be ignored.

                  Let me know all is now well!!!!!!!!!
