Luciano Pavarotti takes his final bow

Le Roi est Mort.....Luciano Pavarotti arguably the greatest tenor ever is no more. A voice that I have always believed is one of the more definitive proofs of the existence of the divine has left us for good. There are times when the sum of the beauty of the world measurably diminishes and the passing of this Maestro is one such moment. We will never hear him live again but thank God for audio recordings.

Listen to his rendition of Schuberts Ave Maria conducted by Zubin Mehta. The power of his voice is just unbelievable.

And here is Luciano singing with U2....a really nice take on the same Ave Maria with beautiful anti war words penned by Bono.
