Leopold Simoneau

French-Canadian tenor Leopold Simoneau died recently, there is an obituary of him here, in the Guardian. Simoneau was posessed of a remarkably high, lyric tenor voice. It is a testament to his gifts that his recording of the French version of Gluck's Orfeo (Orphée et Euridice) has hardly been beaten by recent recordings, despite its age.
