Mercoledi Musicale

I realize that counter tenors are not to everyone's taste but when Handel's Lascia ch'io pianga is sung this beautifully I just have to post it.

An example of the sweetness of Philippe Jaroussky's singing - and we were so lucky to have heard him live on Sunday.

I'm very envious. I have a recording of him singing Vivaldi. He really is an amazing singer.

I love counter tenors. Alfred Deller was always one of my favorites, growing up. This is just exquisite! What an utterly magical voice!

Oh dear now I am searching Amazon and iTunes for recordings of this angel (both physically and vocally). I love counter tenors and Phillippe is amazing. I have only heard David Daniels and Daniel Taylor live. Although I know you do not like Emma Kirby. Daniel Taylor and Emma singing together is truly wonderful. Their voices blend beautifully.
