To end this week, I needed something that made me smile ... something to make this Friday an even *happier* Friday. So, here it is: Ms. Marilyn Horne singing Rosina at the Festival di Macerata in 1980. Please note, not only is her ornamentation mind-bending but, also note the length of the applause at the end of her aria... see how she acknowledges it?
Wait ... weren't we just talking about that? Enjoy!
