Subtle and slightly vague beauty of old arias and the Romantic era’s sacred music, highly emotional: do they have anything in common? No doubt they do. They are both perfectly suitable for organ. However the vocal manner, appropriate for such pieces is somewhat different from the traditional opera style. They say it is more airy. Or, perhaps, more heavenly?
