Monday Morning Music

This morning, here's one of my all-time favorites: "Pura siccome un Angelo" from Verdi's La Traviata. I've queued the video to start with Giorgio's short but stunning aria at 3:45 minutes into the clip (sung by Thomas Hampson), but the clip actually starts a bit earlier if you want to hear some of Anna Netrebko's beautiful voice (though, for me, Beverly Sills will always be Violetta). Translation here.
