Tuesday's Earworm...

...is the gorgeous Ileana Cotrubas singing O Dieu Brahma from Act 1 of Bizet's Les Pecheurs de Perles.  Ever since I witnessed her performance of Mimi in the eternal John Copley ROH La Boheme, broadcast here in the early 80's, I've been a great admirer of La Cotrubas' work. 

Famous worldwide for her performances of Mimi, Susanna, Pamina, Micaela, and Violetta, I thought however, this stunning Invocation by Bizet, from her studio recording with EMI is perfect as birthday tribute listening.
