Well done Jim. You certainly put a lot of time and effort into the most enjoyable half hour I've spent in a long time. Thank you ! I take your point and I'm sure that others will too. If we had the time and the opportunity to sit down and discuss everything over a pot of whisky or so, I'm sure it would be interesting. For instance; Florez v. Filippeschi: The latter (whose timbre I don't particularly like) could belt out the high C's all day but could never in a million years match Florez for coloratura. We could go on and on couldn't we? Once again thank you.
Regards,
Geoff.

The comparisons are not fair. Some modern singers' off nights are included or repertory they barely touched, while for the oldschool examples some of the best renditions ever are used. The maker of this video has an agenda.

What we need now, is someone who is biased towards modern singing to make a video.. and see their selections. :D

When we say "Old School Singing" we are covering several generations of singers and times when there were many more opera shows than today. If we look for pearls in a thousand oysters we will have a better chance of finding some than if we look for pearls in ten oysters.
