Audio
Adelina Patti (1843-1919) remains one of the most famous sopranos in history due to the pure beauty of her lyric voice and the unsurpassed quality of her belcanto technique. Giuseppe Verdi was not alone in calling her the greatest vocalist that he ever heard. So remarkable was the spontaneity of her singing and the singular beauty of her voice that terms like "belcanto" and "coloratura" were first generally used to describe her singing. Patti's early acoustic recordings are an important link in the search for an authentic belcanto tradition.
'Ah, non credea mirarti', distant echo from bygone ages, was recorded in June 1906, at Craig-y-nos Castle, Patti's home in Wales.

You freeze up in childhood, you go numb, because you cannot change your circumstances and to recognize, name, and feel the emotions and their cruel causes would be unbearable, and so you wait.
