Yon moon

I was asked to post Cecilia Bartoli singing Balfe's "Yon moon o'er the mountains", and this was all I could find.  This song is from The Maid of Artois which was written for Maria Malibran.  She died before performing it.

It is fun to see him coaching her to sing with an English accent. She also talks about an ornamented version but sings it straight.

Thank you very much! I surely enjoyed it and will keep looking for the track.

Oh this is nice! I was the person who originally posted this video on YouTube! If you're wondering where to get the track, "Yon moon" comes as a bonus track if you buy the iTunes or mp3 download version of "Maria".
