Adelina Patti Sings
Just noticed that someone has added a comment to my video on YouTube (type in Adelina Patti singing ghost in search field once you are into the site) of Adelina Patti singing:
"How lovely! I had never heard of this remarkable woman."
A local guide told me that when they were doing the first recording in Craig-y-nos of Adelina Patti singing it was made in her boudoir - the Six-Bedder- and she was asked to stand on a trolley. When it came to loud passages they pulled the trolley away from the trumpet and as quiet passages appeared they pushed her forward again.
Thought you would like to know...
