Entrancing voice (contralto): Kathleen Ferrier (1912 - 1953):
Blow the wind southerly
The first time I heard her voice she was singing Mahler's Abschied (Das Lied von der Erde). I was enthralled.
To my surprise it's on YouTube. For anyone that like to hear more of Kathleen Ferrier I recommend:
The orchestra is the Wiener Philharmoniker, Bruno Walter is the conductor, it was recorded in 1952.
