Description
Popularly known as "The Flower Duet", this song from Delibes's opera "Lakme" is scored as "Sous le dome epais". I was in the chorus for this opera back in 2001, so it's nice to have a chance to sing this now!

Another duet with myself - I sing both soprano and mezzo-soprano lines - I have edited this quite substantially to feature just the main well-known melody.

Oh my...
you did it! What a shame you had to edit some out. Still, it's a terrific performance of a piece of music which, I imagine, must be really difficult to perform. This is one of my personal favourite pieces of opera, and you've done it beautifully.

Ok so here is the deal, I am no opera buff and I listened to this only really based on the strength of your previous tune..... however this is a song I have heard before many a time and you sing it absolutely magnificently. A true talent you really are you have a stunning voice truly well done

Thanks
It's always gratifying when people who don't particularly like a genre still listen in, with an open mind. Thank you.

Hi Rosalind. A cold Sunday afternoon here in Melbourne and your wonderful version of the Flower Duet hits the spot just right. You have a beautiful voice and it really shines in both parts of this popular piece. Enjoyed, Peter.

A delightful version of a beautiful song. The backing is good too - sometimes karaoke versions are thin but this one isn't. Thoroughly enjoyed!

Beautiful song...
...and beautifully sung. You are blessed with some wonderful pipes,Rosalind I am glad that I caught this this evening. Such a pleasant surprise to hear this lovely classical song performed with such care and grace. How lucky that some of these gems have pre-recorded accompaniments so that folks with your talent can perform them. I hope you will post many more of these operatic gems.

Wonderful....
While sitting with my lady having a glass of really nice wine, I dropped
this on her, being a retired Opera singer her self, she fell in line with you singing the 3rd harmony just off the top of her head.....
It's been a long time she hasn't ventured into that realm, it felt good to hear her again....As well it's been a long time, not hearing you....
I've gotta stop that and listen to you more often, it's like my body just
slows down to "0" what a great feeling THANK YOU......

What a nice little story there Tony; interesting to hear you are partnered with a former opera singer, glad to have provided her with a platform for a bit of an impromptu sing! Hope you are well?

Beautifully sung.
You have a lovely voice in both ranges. This little gem kind of stands out here at MacJams, where opera is rare. Not many of us would dare. Bravo!

One of those songs
It's been a decade since I saw this opera, but this aria is one of those that really gets stuck in your head... perhaps that is what happened to Lakme?

Your wonderful singing brought me right back there, and gave me shivers (well, the good kind)... so please accept my thanks for bringing this wonderful music and performance back to me. Sigh.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Co-incidently...
...it is 10 years since I was in this opera! But as we are in different continents I doubt it was this one you saw! :-)

Thanks for listening in and your kind comments.

about the recording
No one else has commented about the mix and the recording of the voices here. You have some nice gear or you know how to use it well cause this is a really nice recording of the voices here.

Very beautiful. I know this well as I just recently performed it. We arranged it for piano, clarinet and violin. You are quite a vocal chamelion. This is a surprise after just listening to your St Louis Blues : )
