I like all sorts of things

It would be fun if this came without the label so we could all guess what this is.  She is only the very slightest younger than I, and I was a huge fan. It's less strange than Sting's Dowland.  For the sake of journalism this is Barbra Streisand singing Schumann's "Mondnacht."

Footnote: die Ausprache ist wirklich wunderbar.

Thanks for the links, B. Interesting to hear Streisand and then several actual operatic voices doing the piece. Afraid Streisand's pure but uni-dimensional delivery suffers dramatically from the comparison. IMHO, Good vocal control is no substitute for technique. KC
