Who was that Lady?

Much guesswork, most of it terribly astute, went into our most recent vocal ID quiz, and La Cieca is now ready to reveal the most accurate of a very accurate bunch.

Our sharpest-eared Lady listener is sl, who zeroed in on 14 of the 18 sections, and therefore will the coveted Amazon.com Gift Card.

The complete and correct list of Ladies is as follows:

  1. Maria Callas
  2. Marisa Galvany
  3. Tiziana Fabbricini
  4. Cristina Deutekom
  5. Deborah Voigt
  6. Anja Silja
  7. Pauline Tinsley
  8. Adelaide Negri
  9. Dolora Zajick
  10. Galina Vishnevskaya
  11. Christa Ludwig
  12. Ghena Dimitrova
  13. Elena Souliotis
  14. Liudmyla Monastyrska
  15. Renata Scotto
  16. Jennifer Larmore
  17. Mara Zampieri
  18. Elizabeth Connell

And, believe it or not, DeCaffarrelli did not throw in this ringer.
