A Belated Anniversary

September 16 marked the 60th anniversary of the death of John McCormack:

John McCormack (14 June 1884 – 16 September 1945), was a world-famous Irish tenor in the fields of opera and popular music, and renowned for his flawless diction and superb breath control. . .

. . . and for his silvery, lyrical voice.

Here he is singing, appropriately, “Goodbye” by Francesco Paolo Tosti.
