Libera me…

The great and rich voiced Maureen Forrester crossed over into eternity today. What a magnificent person she was. In The Aspen Festival for my second Verdi Requiem she and I made some really great music.
Our voices went together, the colors fit like a glove, she said, and I just loved her. She was open and expansive and very supportive. A lovely colleague.
Have yet to hear anyone live sing this beautiful requiem with the poise and beauty and velvet plush velvet she had. God bless you dear heart and thank you always/
