Editorial Reviews

Marilyn Horne was one of the most admired singers of her generation, and was a major factor in the bel canto revival of the 1960s. While she was especially associated with the works of Rossini and Handel (she persuaded the Metropolitan Opera to mount Rinaldo for her in 1984, making it the first time the house had ever performed a Handel opera), she was no less adept in Vivaldi and Bellini operas, lieder (especially Mahler), French roles such as Fidès in Meyerbeer's Le Prophete and the title role of Thomas' Mignon; she even took on some Verdi roles, but public reception for those was mixed. Her highly flexible and powerful voice had a certain metallic quality that was especially effective in trouser roles, particularly the martial ones, such as Rinaldo and Tancredi -- earning her the sometime nickname of "General Horne." She possessed an extraordinary range, and in concert even performed Brünnhilde's Immolation Scene.

An essential recording for dedicated opera buffs, classical singers or voice instructors. This moment celebrating the birthday of one America's treasures, Marilyn Horne, allows even the casual listener an opportunity to appreciate some of the finest voices of our time all gathered in the equivalent of a class voice recital singing from a whole range of styles and ending in a very fun rendition of 'Happy Birthday.' Something for everyone!

Any fan of opera--as well as some of its greatest singers--will enjoy this. Just look at the songs and the singers, who range from a young Renee Fleming to mature Horne and Caballe. Just one problem: Why no video of this event? Surely some person had the foresight to film it!

Some very popular opera artists and musicians assembled to celebrate the legacy of Marilyn Horne's long, celebrated career. In turn, one very special recording was created. You will be glad to own this CD if you are an opera connoisseur or just simply love music. The track list is a large part of what makes "Divas in Song" wonderful--operatic and more traditional pieces (e.g. Rachmaninoff's "Vocalise") contrast beautifully with American literature (e.g. "Ol' Man River"). The disc is filled with the rich and warm classical musical and some comedic, light-hearted pieces ("Amor", parody of "Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'").

Although I gave the PRODUCT 5 stars, the sale was only okay. I bought a "like new" copy of the CD. When it arrived, the jewel case was broken, and the rest of the package was at the very best only "very good". Thankfully I purchased the disc at a very low price, so I am overall satisfied with my purchase.
