What a pleasant
surprise. Most enjoyable. Wonderful change up from the majority of what is here on macjams. You have a quality of voice that says you have been doing this for more than a couple of weeks.... ;-} This demands the attention to your personal page. Please, anchor.

Brilliant!
Really "enjoyed" this - gloomy though it is! You have a lovely clear voice and very nice phrasing. Excellent.

ooftah
ooftah - is that you ? yah it is . . .
You must do Puccini well . . .
stuff like oh mia babbino caro and the likes.
With that kind of pure vibrato high "G" - my guess is you may even soar up another perfect fifth in complete comfort.

Thanks!
A flat is about my limit although I can reach a top C in an arpeggio. I'm a mezzo-sop although, yes, I have covered the soprano "o mio babbino caro" here - but one high note in it is definitely a bit dodgy!

Glad I dropped by...
Hi Rosalind. I'm probably showing my ignorance because I don't normally click on MJ opera postings for a listen but when you visited my music I wanted to return the favour in kind. Glad I did. You have a wonderful voice and you really did this aria justice. I enjoyed it a lot. Warm regards, Peter.

Lovely!
Very impressive. Enjoyed it. Had 'Wonderful World' on standby but just about survived!

Nice production, and good accompaniment.

i don't know what on earth i'm talking about, believe me, but i've always thought that opera singers generally overdo the vibrato just a teeny bit?

Still overall very good, just a minor and probably entirely inappropriate and ignorant reservation.

Can't stay, i'm getting chucked out by security!

Vibrato
Hey, vibrato is a useful device when we opera singers don't really know the right notes in that particualar song - the wobble enables you to make an educated guess and at least hit the right note once out of the several others warbled out per second!:-p
