My video seeks to commemorate the lives of these wonderful singers: they are true legends, and should never be forgotten. '"Au fond du temple saint...was always top of listener's polls for the BBC's Your Hundred Best Tunes. It was also No 1. in ABC's "The Classic 100 Opera", a poll in which Australians voted for the one moment in opera they could not live without.'(Wikipedia)
