Joan Sutherland

I just read that Joan Sutherland has died.

For some reason, on Friday evening, I listened to aria after aria sung by her, via YouTube. I have not listened to her in many, many years, despite the stack of La Stupenda cd's I still own. Although she could be hard to watch as an actress, as a singer, hers was the first and last standard of perfection and quality of voice I held as inspiration. Her voice and musicianship were unmatched in her repertoire.

They don't make them like that any more.


  1. Amen. It's like the opera firmament is short one of it's brightest lights tonight. A great Dame.
