It’s been weeks since my last public engagement so I’ve manufactured my own! It’s time for the first of your lockdown Friday arias.
I was planning on singing something from Greek antiquity and even wore my Cretan earrings in readiness but the sun came out and I decided to go for something naughtier. So, here’s “Mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix” from Samson & Delilah by Saint-Saëns.
I also had the best intentions of singing in a Facebook live but thought better of it so, to be completely honest, this is one of four takes. I’m always amazed at how much I learn from filming my performances. It’s such a hideous thing to watch back but is the single most helpful piece of feedback you can get.
With enormous thanks to the brilliant Toby Nelms who played and recorded such beautiful accompaniment for this. Thank you!
Have a great weekend. Stay cheered, stay healthy and lots of love xx
(P.S. I promise to give you Greek myth next week…)
