    Horne Sequel: Mostly Old Stuff

    I was VERy disappointed in this book, and I'm a great fan of Marilyn Horne. What irked me was that about two-thirds of the book is just a rehasing of the stories from her first book, published around 1982. In this sequel, we find the same old ancedotes about her singing teachers, her father, her husband, her operatic colleagues, etc. If you're an opera buff, you might have enjoyed these stories the first time, but to have them simply repackaged as if they were new--under the misleading title of 'The Song 'CONTINUES'--is unconscionable. The marketers of her book apparently couldn't find new material, so they warmed up the old stuff. How could a reader know this? I consider this a ripoff.

    well-written memoirs of a great singer

    This book is another welcome addition to Baskerville's 'Great Voices' series. The strength of this is Marilyn Horne herself. Instead of being a dreary list of her successes (of which she had many) as some singers have given, this delightful book is like having the diva just chatting with you, in her warm, open style. I know that first-hand as I had the pleasure of chatting with her (all too briefly) at a couple parties during my years in Houston. She 'tells it like it is' with honesty and lots of personality. The CD is a definite plus as it live material from performances throughout her career. Highly recommended!
