The Singing from Cardiff

We been glued to the Cardiff Singer of the World contest on BBC 4.

Tonight (Saturday 18 June, 7.30-9pm) BBC 4 is broadcasting the final of the Song Contest. We's be watching.

Tomorrow (Sunday 19 June, 5.30pm. BBC 4) is the final of the overall Contest.

Some lovely singing and frocks.... some not so nice singing OR frocks.

The former Eastern Bloc appears to have it, but the diminutive South Korean, Hye Jung Lee does a wowser Zerbinetta and Meeta Raval rolls her eyes and belts it out for England. I did quite like the Australian mezzo Helen Sherman and the Irish mezzo Maire Flavin too. Perhaps I just like mezzos?
