Joan Sutherland 1926 -2010


Let the bright Seraphim in
burning row their loud uplifted
angel-trumpets blow.

Let the cherubic host, in tuneful
choir, touch their immortal
harps with golden wire.

Let the bright Seraphim in
burning row their loud uplifted
angel-trumpets blow

Through the mercy of God may she rest in peace and join the Saints in praising him forever.

Amen, Father : she had a fine voice, and a proper devotion to the God Who gave it to her.

May she rest in peace, and rise in glory.

A beautiful combination of a tribute and prayer.

We Australians are often accused or accuse ourselves,or by expats such as Greer and Robertson,of having no culture . However seeing as Australia produced Nellie Melba,Peter Dawson,Eileen Joyce and Dame Joan Sutherland- God Bless her soul- it would seem that after all we do have some.
