This is my first YouTube posting!

Hopefully it works. Sit back and enjoy three minutes of Heaven from Elisabeth Schwarzkopf with Gerald Moore. I think this is from 1958.

She was born in the very same week as Frank Sinatra.

A few years ago, I got Moore's memoirs out of the library. He quoted what is probably the best-ever newspaper review of a recital by a singer:

"Last night Miss Blank sang at the Wigmore Hall. Why?"
