C3-RAMOPHONE

VICTORIA DE LOS ANGELES NOVEMBER 1, 1923 - JANUARY 31, 2005

Farewell to a beloved soprano

There were few sopranos of the post- seduced by her winning stage presence as by the simplest of Spanish folk songs. Luckily, de war years as beloved as Victoria de los her delightful voice. De los Angeles's death in los Angeles is well represented on disc. From Angeles. From the early appearances January has robbed us of a true artist, someone her Cannen and Boheme under Beecham to the in the 1950s to her enchanting concerts late whose style could bring tears to the eyes in solo albums, she will always be there to spin her in life, she would send her audiences away as Puccini or Massenet, or a smile to the face in vocal magic for us. (See obituary on page 22.)
