R.I.P. Luciano Pavarotti


I'm sorry to hear of the passing of Luciano Pavarotti. While I have never been a profound fan of his voice; it was primarily his charisma and that of some fellow performers (Beverly Sills and others) that led to a brief, vibrant interest in opera, which has long since subsided to the present status-symbol supported institution that it has become. A man of great talent and tremendous personality, while he hasn't been very active in recent years, the loss of so great a talent is a loss for all.

"No man is an islande. . . "

"Goodnight sweet prince, may choirs of angels sing thee to thy rest."

And may almighty God receive him joyfully into his eternal home.
