Sunday Morning Singers

Apropos of nothing at all, here are the singers to whom I've been listening this morning: Kenneth McKellar, Anna Netrebko, Aldo Protti, Rita Streich, Franco Bonisolli, Franco Corelli, Eberhard Wächter, Ruggero Raimondi, Ernesto Palacio, Justin Lavender, Ella Fitzgerald, Platon Tsesevich, Francesco Navarini, Umberto Di Lelio. A mixed, but entirely pleasurable bunch.

There are one or two there that I have never heard of.

As I write this I'm enjoying Barbara Bonney singing Mozart but whilst preparing and partaking of a light lunch it was Ian Partridge and  Vaughan Williams.

Vocal music (religious or otherwise) always seems to go down well on a Sunday?

I cannot imagine a better performance of Wenlock Edge than Partridge's.

Sunday morning is strong coffee, honey on homemade bread and choral music - this morning Victoria's Missa O Quam Gloriosum started me off. At some point I switch to organ music, generally Messiaen but this morning Malcolm Williamson's Symphony for Organ. Williamson's status amongst British composers (I know he was born in Australia but ............) always seems to be an odd one.

What exactly did you listen to from Ella?

And how did it fit into your program?

(It is my favourite Jazz singer, but I incorporate her recordings along with similar or more appropriate program).

I'd like the recipe for that partridge and vaughan williams.

Fair enough, JKH. The "Tisket, Tasket" is such fun, particularly the way she sang it.

From the other singers (such a choice at random), I admire your predilection for such (almost completely) forgotten gem artists, like Ernesto Palacio, Aldo Protti and Rita Streich, to mention those being a soft spot to me.

Of course, I couldn't choose them for a Sunday morning listening (for years now, I stick to more "profound" music, like instrumental, chamber, orchestral and choral works). Vocal and Opera are confined to some more passionate (and popular) evening or night sessions.

All the best in your Sunday listening mornings,

Parla

Thank you Parla. Each to his own, as they say, especially on a Sunday.

Ernesto Palacio has coached Florez for some time, and I think the influence can clearly be heard in Palacio's recordings. In particular, his album of Tosti songs is, in my opinion, right out of the top drawer - the weight of his voice absolutely fits the medium and the orchestrations are, unlike so many versions by more famous singers, a model of taste and charm.

Oh, Ella Fitzgerald! I adore her. Ready to listen to her magical voice over and over again. Always!

Ella Fitzgerald is among my favs.  She's on of the best singers ever, isn't she?

RE: Sunday Morning Singers

This is really exciting. I love music and one of my favorite singer
is Michelle Branch. She is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and
actress. She is popular world-wide and lots of people show their
support through online such as posting some comments, likes her photos,
etc.
