I would not describe myself as an "opera fan" per se, but I can be moved by exquisite music with the best of them. So, without further ado, my greatest hits.
"Ebben? Ne andrò lontana" from Catalina's La Wally I am a movie fan, through and through, and this is an amazing movie, but also one of the most spine-chillingly beautiful operatic arias.
Those, who, like me, grew up listening to the CBC may remember Clive Gilmour and "Gilmour's Albums" on Sunday mornings. This was one of the highlights: the "pearl fishers" duet sung by Jussi Bjorling and Robert Merrill.
Saving the best for last, this is not strictly Opera, but represents my own taste in vocal music: Bach oratorios. And here is one the the most purely exquisite arias from Bach's Matthew Passion. Enjoy.
