With Callas and Tebaldi, the most famous of the sopranos of the modern, digital, age.

Known as "La Stupenda", she was a coluratura soprano with amazing breath control and a huge range. Was a "Diva" with none of the airs and all of the graces.

Died in her 83rd year on Monday the 10th. The world of opera has lost a legend.

There was a clip on RTE Morning Ireland of her singing something. I missed what it was. Shivers up the spine was one way of putting it when I heard it.

Anyone know what it was? Ok Ok, I can go to RTE player, but am just in from work and a bit jaded like.
