Sorry for mis-send.


Currently obsessed with the aria "O ma lyre immortelle" from Sappho by

It seems reminiscent of Gluck, and/or Massenet, and  unlike any other aria
by Gounod, in my opinion.

There are beautiful performances by Verrett, Crespin and Horne, among
others, and I think Verrett is the best of these commercial recordings.

But Anita Rachvelishvili is stupendous on youtube at the Bastille Day

Anyone else love this aria?

Has anyone seen or heard the complete opera?
