From the soul of an artist!

From Walt Disney’s CINDERELLA: “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” (music and words by Mack David, Al Hoffman, and Jerry Livingston). Classical sections include “Je t’adore brigand” from Jacques Offenbach’s LA PÉRICHOLE; “D’amour l’ardente flamme,” from Hector Berlioz’s LA DAMNATION DE FAUST; “Sgombra è la sacra selva” from Vincenzo Bellini’s NORMA, and Jerome Kern’s “The Way You Look Tonight,” written for the Astaire/Rogers film Swing Time.
