I have been listening to some older CD's that I have of the French soprano  
Francoise Pollet.  I had fond memories of her and at one time thought she  
would be the replacement for the great Crespin.  It never seems to have  happened 
but I just went back to some of those CD's, in particular the French  album on 
Erato and a CD of Italian arias by Verdi and Puccini.  There is so  much to 
admire here.  The singing is big, generous, and very well  vocalized.  On top 
of that it is a rich, beautiful voice, well controlled  and used with 
sensitivity and beauty.  Does anyone on the list know what  has become of her?  Does 
anyone have a clue as to why the career never  really took off?  It should have 
been major - we could use her today.
There was another French soprano of the same generation - a pupil of  Crespin 
- Isabelle Vernet who also seems to have vanished from the scene.   Anyone 
know of what happened to her?
