From The Strad:

The great string players of the past embodied the ‘singing’ style that signifies their relationship with vocalists of the time. Why can’t today’s stars capture the same atmosphere, asks Tully Potter.

Every two weeks I and like-minded souls foregather in London to hear a programme of vocal discs, drawn from the legacy of recordings reaching back more than a century. We range from those with considerable musical expertise to those who simply like to hear good singing, and from those nurtured on historic discs to those who prefer today’s artists. When it is my turn to present a programme to this venerable gathering – The Recorded Vocal Art Society (RVAS), founded in 1953 – I may well infiltrate a record with a string obbligato.

That's a 5 star post, Di.

I play a lot of song's by singer's from the past, just not that far back. Usually from the 20's - 60's and a little more modern, no so operatic.

Good post.
