It’s difficult to describe how profoundly moving it had always been to hear or see Jessye Norman as she graced the stage so wonderfully with her phenomenal talent. A majestic and beautiful presence, that is difficult to word.
I’d borrow the phrase ”flights of angels take thee”.. , but, I usually viewed the owner of that voice as an angel walking among us, so, I’ll say :
– Go thee sweetly – returnéd thou art now to that beloved heavenly host –
Wonderful Jessye Norman
