Tito Schipa's aria Pourquoi me réveiller is sublime. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pj3YH6RynuA

Here Leo Slezak displays perfect legato between every vocal register. The tenderness and care of each note so tenderly caressed to perfection leaves me speechless. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4edcXB_YXkU

Finally, Fernando De Lucia's 1906 recording of Je crois entendre encore is the supreme example of perfectly controlled legato as far as I'm concerned. It can be heard on disk 2 of the Marston complete G and T set. https://www.marstonrecords.com/products/delucia

-- Great videos you all! Thanks for sharing! :D
