Renee Fleming, Yo Yo, Blossom Dearie, and well, you know who…

What is lovely in this is the string arrangement.  Renee Fleming, if you don’t know of her, is the star soprano of the Metropolitan Opera.  She likes to stretch her wings and try other material.  In this case, a Blossom Dearie composition arranged by Edgar Meyer.  The recording is for Yo yo Ma’s Christmas album from 2008, Songs of Joy and Peace.

Enjoy the beautiful string arrangement.

About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.
