II found one word in JANIS by Holly George-Warren.

1. coloratura – “After one Lions Club performance in 1931, the local paper noted that ‘judging from the applause, she was a regular sensation,’ with Dorothy ‘being heralded as a second Marion Talley’ the teenage coloratura soprano plucked from Kansas City, Missouri, to join the New York Metropolitan Opera.”

Coloratura is elaborate ornamentation of a vocal melody, especially in operatic singing by a soprano.

    Good word! We have been fans of Cecelia Bartoli since the beginning of her career. She first sang in Ann Arbor in 1993 as she rose to stardom. What a diva!

    Another favorite singer of ours was Elly Ameling whose singing of a particular composition was described as having “light flicks of coloratura.”

    Not surprisingly, coloratura is new to me! I will try to remember it.
