No word from Tom

The whole month you may have seen the banner to the right: October is world-wide breast cancer awareness month. For the conclusion of this subject, here we have a third clip of a survivor of the disease, the lovely soprano Dawn Upshaw, whom I saw perform live in Chicago in 1991. She is my favourite singer in that genre, whether she tackles art songs, symphonies (Gorecki's 3d) or arias like No word from Tom from Stravinsky's The Rakes Progress.
