Sorry for mis-send.

Greetings

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

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
concert.

Anyone else love this aria?

Has anyone seen or heard the complete opera?

John
