The great contralto, Maureen Forrester, performs "Blow the Wind Southerly". And, from the standpoints of tone, line, diction, directness, expressive nuance, physical poise, etc., this is a model of what beautiful singing is all about!

I can imagine this as the background music to a film showing a sailing ship ploughing through the waves. It would really set the scene for me.

I'm glad you all enjoyed . . . Miss Forrester was a real treasure and, despite her great artistry, so frequently overlooked among the singers of her generation.
