    It doesn't get better than this:

    and his "Io morro" from Don Carlo is absolutely heartbreaking

    Perhaps the best Wotan voice of all time. Definitely in my top 3:

    Walvater to the life. The voice of a god. London was my first Wotan on recordings, and I've yet to hear a worthy successor. Of course we could go back to the prime of Friedrich Schorr:

    Another extraordinary bass-baritone of that era here shows off his incredible breathing by seeming not to do any!

    We don't often hear that kind of vocal ease and seamless legato in Wagner, or from such large voices.

    It's often overlooked, but one of my all-time favorites is the double aria "Sacra la scelta...Ah, fu giusto il mio sospetto" sung by the character of Miller (baritone) in Act I of Verdi's LUISA MILLER.

    I might ask the mods to let me revise the OP.

    I've listened to many YouTube videos where people argue among themselves whether the part is bass, bass-baritone or bass or what type of voice the singer has at the moment of the performance.

    Should we try and change the OP to "arias/passages" sung by bass, bass-baritone and basses? Should we make this even more of a learning experience and try and identify the fach of the piece?

    I will give an example that I've found:



    and another for fun....

    Thank you for thinking of me, Bonetan. Post as many versions of Wache Walle as you'd like. (So far, my favorite is still Goerne's.)

    Have you heard Tomlinson yet? His is my favorite. His version is much more exciting than Goerne's imo

    My favorite baritone (sadly, RIP):
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    If I can include a bass-baritone, then I really like Nikolaus Hillebrand. Here he is as Don Fernando (a baritone role) on the Bohm Fidelio.
