80th birthday salute to the fabulous Montserrat Caballe

Last Friday was the 80th birthday of one of my vocal idols, Montserrat Caballe. I offer these belated good wishes with a sampling of the Spanish soprano's radiant tone and sublime musicality in a Strauss song. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.  Feliz cumpleanos, Madame Caballe.
