 Angels in the Morning September 12, 2014 By thomas f. (Fishertown, PA) See All My Reviews "I own two copies of this cd. One for my car and one for home. I often listen to it going to work in the morning. I love hearing the silvery crystal clear voice of Kathleen Battle. The Zaide is one of my favorites. It's hard to choose a favorite because I have seen them in the DVDS she played in. I wouldn't pass this up at this price. It would make a great gift for a friend." Report Abuse
 beautiful music for the morning. September 3, 2014 By Alan T. (Corinella, Victoria) See All My Reviews "I have not listened to Kathleen Battle for some time. Wednesday morning is my day at home without outside noise and people. I filled the time so well listening to her. It may have been the all red that drew my hand to it or that it was all Mozart. I was familiar with a number of the arias and appreciated the translations to get the most satisfaction from the tracks." Report Abuse
