Ten days ago, I pointed readers to the website Classical Voice North America for two reports of mine on recent operatic events in Vienna, Basel, and Paris. Now I'm back to point you to another, this one on Franz Schmidt's oratorio Das Buch Mit Sieben Siegeln (The Book With Seven Seals), based on the Book of Revelation. It a fascinating work Americans seldom encounter. I hope you'll enjoy reading about it.
