Dear Visibilium:

Happened to be over at Arturo Vasquez' weblog, and saw your entry. I decided to come over here, and saw the lovely Nelson Eddy YouTube clip.

Thank you for this treasure. I had known that he had done movies in which he sang in Russian. I never knew, til now, that he also knew the Russian Liturgical tradition.
