I just found out that Montserrat Caballé died last Saturday. She was active up until she was hospitalized a month ago.
Her complete and official name was Excelentísima Señora Doña Maria de Montserrat Viviana Concepción Caballé i Folc, Order of Isabella the Catholic, Civil Order of Alfonso X the Wise, Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany, Legion of Honour, Order of Merit of the Italian Republic.
She was a Spanish operation soprano that crossed my path musically when she and Freddie Mercury performed together on the album Barcelona. Here is the title song from that album.
