The great singer died today at the age of 85.   Thanks for the beautiful music, and rest well.

Thank you Sim.  I saw her I think in her last Royal Opera House performances in Rossini's 'Il Viaggio a Reims' - still in great singing voice although I recall some spoken asides which didn't carry and rather irritated the audience.  But I will remember most her wonderful Verdi, her Elisabetta on the Giulini Don Carlo recording is a great favourite.

Her funeral took place today in Barcelona, attended by Jose Carreras, the Queen of Spain, the Spanish Prime Minister and the Catalan president.  I am sure it was a lovely and fitting farewell.
