* The encyclopedia clarifies why this work should be attributed to Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel rather than to Johann Sebastian Bach.

Admirers of Arleen and Lucia Popp will forgive me for detailing some of the parallels between them: Both were born in 1939, one in California, one in Slovakia. Both were beautiful ladies with wonderful voices and techniques. Both sang "Queen of the Night" early in their careers before developing wide repertoires, including opera, recital and Oratorio. Both worked extensively with Irwin Gage as their piano accompanist and made many recordings with him. Arleen performed in front of one of the biggest audiences ever. The live TV pictures of her Exultate Jubilate at Prince Andrew's wedding in 1986 were watched by an estimated 700 million. Both died all too young, within months of each other in 1993 at virtually the same age -- both victims of brain tumor.
