Sunday Morning with José Carreras

The Barcelona-born tenor José Carreras was perhaps best known for his interpretations of the works of Verdi and Puccini, as well as being on of the three members of The Three Tenors, along with Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti in the 1990s. His dashing good looks and beautiful voice made him a natural leading man in many an opera from the 1970s until today. So he seemed a great choice to start your Sunday, especially shen he sings "The Lord's Prayer", the prayer set to the music of Albert Hay Malotte in 1935.

And while not a particularly spiritual song, is a stunning aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini's opera 'Turandot'. "Nessun Dorma" has been sung by some of the greatest voices who ever lifted their voice in opera, but few with the ease and grace of Carreras.

Enjoy your Sunday.
