Cher Public

Strike a Posa

It’s just a teensy bit late for Verdi’s birthday, but La Cieca thinks you’ll enjoy the latest vocal ID challenge, cher public: 16 baritones singing the opening phrases of Posa’s “romance” from Don Carlos.

For this lyrical quiz prepared by Our Own DeCaffarrelli, your task is to identify as many Posas as possible, in the correct order, in the comments section.

Whoever identifies all 16 correctly first will win a coveted Amazon Gift Card. All decisions will be made by La Cieca, which I don’t think I need to tell you implies finality. La Cieca will keep this competition open for seven days, finishing on Saturday, October 19 at 8:00 PM.

Dear DeCaffarrelli has supplied the following start times of each singer’s contribution in the above track.
