Description
Written by a non-Italian (Christoph Willibald von Gluck), “O Del Mio Dolce Ardor” has musical qualities which later in history would be associated with the bel canto era in Italian vocal music (“beautiful singing”). The pinnacle of bel canto were the operas of Donizetti and Bellini in the 19th century.

Lyrics
The English Version:
Oh, of my sweet ardor
You desired object!
The air which you breathe,
At last I will breathe.

Wherever my glance I turn
Your lovely features
Love for me paint a picture:
My thoughts imagine
The most happy hopes,
And in the longing which
Thus fills my breast
I seek you, I call you, I hope, and I sigh. Ah!

Quiet but lovely.
Stick some crackles on it and you could be listening to a real 78 from the 1800's. Sort of.

O del mio
It's amazing what you can do with a crummy mike and Garageband. The result isn't perfect, but it's simpler than going to a recording studio.

I agree
The pinhole mic on the iMac produces results that are far better than you might expect.

Always a pleasure...
...to hear something classical. It's tough to perform these operatic song, but you do a creditable job and I enjoyed hearing you tacking such tough music and with such personal passion.

Born in the backwoods of Canuckistan, Johnny spent long winter nights with his ear glued to the radio (he'd always had a problem with excess earwax), listening to all manner of music while the northern lights cavorted silently outside his window. ... [see more]
