Luciano Pavarotti
(1935 – 2007) 

Remember when we were watching the video of Jill Burkee, the sculptress of marble? When Luciano Pavarotti was singing the Panic Angelicus? Well, when I went to YouTube to find Ms. Burkee’s video, I found this wonderful piece about Pavarotti where he takes us to his boyhood home and visits with his parents, singing with his father who was also a tenor. I just had to share it. If you have an interest, click play:

Pavarotti grew up in Modena, Italy where his father was a
baker and also a tenor, so that Pavarotti and his father
often sang together at church services.

Pavarotti was very famous because he could hit high “C” notes clearly, with force, and hold them for a long time. It is said that he was especially good at his High C’s when he was younger. Here is a video including his High Cs so you can listen to what everyone talks about, if you are not a fan already. To listen, click play:
