This is a fantastic version, thanks for posting Haysi ! Julia Migenes has such an amazing voice - what a range - and really pretty too ! I love the way she reaches those top notes - awesome and passionate eh ?

yip this has to be one of my favourite pieces of music EVER! I rented the BBC presentation with Anne Sofie von Otter and was watching it today, my niece 'recognised' this song and I was so moved :D
