Compilation: Cornell MacNeil - Arias and excerpts from Pagliacci, Tosca, Ernani, Rigoletto and More!


Listen to a Sample:


It was with sadness that we learned of the passing of the great American baritone Cornell MacNeil.  MacNeil's voice was astonishing for the extremes it could achieve in range and dynamics, making him ideal for all the great Verdi baritone roles.  And in an era where Italian singers were still the dominant force in Verdi, MacNeil did much to show that Americans had a valid point of view in that arena.  We are very pleased to present this tribute in honor of the life of Cornell MacNeil.  At over an hour of music, this compilation features arias and excerpts from Aida, Ernani, La Forza del destino, Nabucco, Rigoletto, Tosca and I Pagliacci.
