The Baker's Son Makes Me Sad This Morning

RIP Luciano Pavarotti...
I did not care much for his star allures (remember Terry Pratchett immortalizing his giant white handkerchief and constant eating in Maskerade?) but I melted every time I heard him singing. I hope the choir Up There rejoices in getting another tenor added to the team. :-)

UPDATE: Try these samples of his performances: the first is his duet with another departed giant, James Brown, in an amazing rendition of It's A Man's World; the second is his heartfelt and moving performance in Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci...gives me goosebumps.
