Cristina Branco

CRISTINA BRANCO canta SHAKESPEARE: My sister links to a YouTube clip of Cristina Branco singing Se a Alma te Reprova, a translation of Shakespeare's Sonnet 136, which is also included in the album Sensus (also available as an Amazon MP3). For me she's the best Portuguese singer in a long time, musically more creative and emotionally more subtly expressive than others who are better known. (Via aguarelas de Turner.)

It was either you or NPR that convinced me to buy her Ulisses album. In any case I'm greatful "Sete Pedacos de Vento" is one of my favorite pieces of music"
