The musing outlet of Smorg the cycling opera fan in Southern California.
Hallo Smorg,A pleasure to listen to this song. Made in USA?Georg
Hallo Georg,Yup, composed by Stephen Foster and is played a lot during the December holiday season. I've rarely ever heard it sung this exquisitely, though. Marilyn Horne was more known for her bravura singing of florid music from the bel canto period, but I really like her in quiet and controlled pieces like this one (and 'Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair') more. And that Martin Katz is magical from the piano! :o)Cheerio,Smorgy :o)
