Two Divas...One Album

Two of the greatest Divas of the mid to late Twentieth Century had birthdays this week, Renata Scotto and Mirella Freni.  I have loved both for many years, in very similar repertoire and both for sometimes very similar reasons.

Rather than a sing-off of one of their most popular shared roles I thought I'd share this rarity of a disc - a series of duets recorded in the studio around 1980.  It's rather luscious and captures both ladies at their absolute vocal peak, especially the track above and the extended Act 2 duets from Norma which conclude the album.  Expect ravishing singing from both singers and a fitting vocal combined birthday tribute.
