Music by Christoph Willibald Ritter von Gluck (1714 – 1787), sung by Rita Gorr. I chose this piece, not because it is the best recording (Maria Callas springs to mind) but because Rita Gorr was born Marguerite Geirnaert in Zelzate in 1926.
Ghent used to be very proud of this now almost forgotten daughter. Almost, but not quite !
Memories ... old memories, from the early sixties. Bittersweet memories.
