RIP Rita Gorr

Belgian mezzo-soprano Rita Gorr (b. 1926) left us on January 22. I am sad I never featured her on these pages. Here is her Wikipedia bio.

This is from the Aida recording with Leontyne Price and John Vickers (1988, cond. Solti):

1991 appearance on French TV (pretty damned good for 65 years of age):
