My Personal Top 10 Female Singers – No 3

by Dorothea

…in no particular order & with my favorite recording…

Number Three: Kiri Te Kenawa

kiri te kanawa 2

The New Zealand soprano of European and Maori origin has stolen my heart in Joseph Canteloube’s “Chants d’Auvergne” (Songs from The Auvergne) and “Bachianas Brasileiras No.5” by Heitor Villa-Lobos (click links to listen).


The double CD is available on Itunes with the magical orchestration by Jeffrey Tate & Lynn Harrell and the English Chamber Orchestra.
