One reason why I love the mezzosoprano voice

Last night I listened to to Boni’s Sesto and it reminded me how much I liked her. Words sort of fail to sum up just how this rendition of Par che mi nasca in seno makes me feel. I’d call it lovely but the term falls way short. It’s gentle and melancholic but also hopeful and loving and peaceful – put together it musically expresses what I’d call kindness. I feel cocooned by it.
