 Breathtaking and Stunning January 22, 2013 By C. Milhaus See All My Reviews "This is one recording where the studio trumps a Live Opera House performance. Having Heard Ms. Sills sing this at The Met, and at La Scala, I find this studio a stunning revelation of both Sils's technique and beauty of voice. Her singing is as triumph, and Ms Verrett is a very worthy partner I had tears of joy rolling dowen my cheeks listening to this and it will be and has become one of my att time favorite recordings" Report Abuse
