First time I ever listened to this aria sung by a contralto. Marian Anderson's range is greater than I expected (though she is still singing this well ... not quite mezzo soprano, even). In any case I'm glad she broke musical barriers as well. Racists, opera-purists: beware of what you are about to (hope springs eternal in one's heart when once summer threatens to get hotter than usual) listen.   10
