A "Salut demeure' Compilation

I think you will enjoy these 17 tenors singing the famous aria
from Gounod's "Faust" and will be able to understand how
various tenors approach the top note, because that alone is quite interesting;of course, you might be hearing some of these artists
for the very first time, and I think you will be pleased.

Cenerentola Finale Pot-Pourri

I had a problem with the narration for this podcast, so you will
have to live without the benefit of my voice for this one. I was
so thrilled at Joyce Di Donatos' fabulous rendition of the final
aria of Cenerentola at her recent recital, that I decided to do
a comparison of several other mezzos in this same scene. They
are as follows in order:

Ceclia Bartoli, Olga Borodina, Ewa Podles, Maria Callas,
Veselina Kasarova, Agnes Baltsa, Marilyn Horne, Conchita
Supervia, and Joyce di Donato. 

     I sincerely hope you enjoy the podcast!
