    Peter Smith Dawson, January 31, 1882 in Adelaide, Australia
    Died September 27, 1961
    Have a listen on Youtube. One of the most perfectly-focused bass-baritone voices ever recorded, with crystal clear diction and an amazing range reaching from the bass bottom D to the tenor top A flat. Peter's earliest recordings were on Victrola cylinders and his last ones were stereo LPs. When he chose to record opera or oratorio it was exquisite but essentially he made his career in Victorian/Edwardian ballads and the semi-pop of his day. Sadly, like others of his countrymen/ women, he had to achieve his full potential abroad.

    C'est vrai:

    deux plats y peaux = un uom bat...

    All joking and one-upmanship aside, is there as Swiss school that does so? The reason I ask is that I was at the Maths meeting for all the Swiss International Schools less than a month ago and no-one mentioned it.
     
  10. I must write to Forbes Magazine. Bleeding Americans they know nothing about Europe.
