Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody ! EWTN(Mother Angelica's Catholic Cable Channel)will show 1980's movie, "A Time To Remember"on Dec. 20th, at 8:00 P.M.and on Dec. 23rd, at 3:30 A.M.(Eastern Time Zone). It's about a tenor, who, as a boy, idolized Mario Lanza. It's told in flashback and stars Donald O'Connor as a priest and Morgana King(Mama Corleone in "The Godfather"). Also, on EWTN, there will be a showing of "The Christophers" with Father Keller, which presents celebrities honoring Christmas. I think this is the one starring Rosalind Russell, Danny Thomas, Snooky Lanson, June Christy, Mario Lanza, and The Lennon Sisters. It will air on Dec. 19th, 11:00 P.M. Dec.22nd, 2:30 P.M., Dec. 26th, 6:30 P.M.

Chris: No, it is a different song, different composer. The Virgin's Slumber Song was written by Max Reger, not Richard Strauss. Ciao.

Dan,
Isn't that the melody of Mario's 'Virgin Slumber Song'.

Has anyone ever listened to "Wiegenlied" by Richard Strauss? It is a beautiful melody (cradle song) ideally suited for this time of year. I have a recording with Renee Fleming, and she does an outstanding job...I think the three tenors also had sung it during one of their performances...not as beautiful as a soprano's soaring tones...listen and enjoy...

Understand that feeling, Suzanne. We always had about 24 for both holidays, and of course I did all the work, and all the cleanup. But it was nice to have everyone together - been over 10 years now. My son and I will have a nice dinner, and plenty of leftovers - and peace and quiet.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who post here. If you're spending it with your families, glad for you. I have to do without some of mine again this year, but will muddle through as before. Missing the days of the dining room full of people, cooking not only Turkey but ducks for my dad. Turned out some of the kids liked the duck better!One oven , so it was quite the challenge. Even miss the confusion! Blessings, anyway!

Fred: that reminded me I promised an Il Volo Christmas cd to a friend I paint with today. So I got busy and took care of that.

I don't have all of Mario's Christmas songs for some reason. Still planning to get rid of my vinyl - but will have to dig it out of my storage cabinet.

While getting material out to make a Mario Lanza Christmas CD for a friend of mine I came upon a Caruso CD you made for me many years back. The first cut was O Holy Night sung in French I played it twice I'd forgotten just how good it was and will add it to the CD.

Roberto: As far as is known, Lanza and Di Stefano never actually met in person, but they did speak to each other on the phone, 2 or 3 times. Lanza lived in Rome, Di Stefano lived in Milan. Ciao.

Hello to all. I have a question. Did Mario Lanza an Giuseppe Di Stefano know each other personally? I mean did they ever actually meet? I met Giuseppe Di Stefano in 1980 but it didnt occur to me to ask him about Mario. I regret that to this day. Thank you!

Ed: Probably Beniamino Gigli, who died on November 30, 1957, age 67. Gigli was a favorite of both Lanza and Di Stefano. However, Bjoerling was also a favorite of Lanza and Di Stefano. Jussi died on Sept 9, 1960, age 49. Ciao.

Fred, who was the tenor who died which caused Lanza to tell DeStefano "now it's just you and me Pippo"
