Re: Classical and Opera lovers

I searched and saw one lone reference to one of my all-time favourites, so with your permission may I post Verdi's Va pensiero. Even though marvellous versions have been done by Pavarotti and Bocelli, for me the haunting pathos of the Slaves Chorus will always belong to the great choirs of the world.

This performance is by the NY Metropolitan Opera
