Singer of the Day: Eula Beal, 1919-2008

I have to admit that I was completely unfamiliar with this remarkable singer until several weeks ago. The natural beauty of her instrument combined with her natural delivery is spellbinding. Eula Beal had a relatively short lived career, opting to spend her energies raising her family. One can only imagine what her contributions would have been had she continued. Luckily, there are recordings and the footage from the television program Concert Magic. Listen for yourselves!

Schubert's Erlkönig

Singing Erbarme dich/ Have Mercy, Lord from Bach's St. Matthew Passion with Yehudi Menuhin playing the violin solos.
