A long-unexpected passing

I return from holiday business to find Lorraine Hunt Lieberson dead. Others probably heard and loved her more. I actually found her opera work not-quite-up-to-hype until I saw that first shockingly perfect Didon. The evening of that premiere was a triumph of the first magnitude, and I'm glad she saw one like that on our biggest stage.
