    Kirsten Flagstad

    This 5-disc collection of Kirsten Flagstad classics recently made its way to me through a friend, and I couldn't be more grateful. If you are a fan of soprano singers than look no further than this Norwegian extraordinaire. The first CD features several different arias from the Baroque era, including Handel and Bach. The second CD is actually my favorite consisting of many traditional songs composed by or written about Scandinavians. This is a great buy for opera lovers around the world. If you haven't yet heard Kirsten Flagstad's beautiful voice, this is your chance.
