    That's a beautiful album Florestan, you're going to like it. I should give it a listen again soon!

    I am finally beginning to get into this collection, and what a treat. Her voice is exquisite and the music is striking. I wish I had the sheet music so I could look at it while I listen.

    Good choice! The Panis Angelicus by Franck is especially beautifully performed.....

    Honestly, I prefer her in contralto territory. The voice can go incredibly high, fast and light, but imo, it sounds muddy and hermaphroditic in that register. Down below, the voice is rich, chocolaty, like melted fudge over ice cream. For example:






    I think you'll agree: This is not the sound of a mezzo. This, ladies and gentlemen, is as contralto as it gets.
