American opera singer ROSE BAMPTON has died. She was 99.
The soprano died in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania suburb of Bryn Mawr on Tuesday (21Aug07).
Bampton, who made her professional debut in 1929, appeared several times with Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra during her career.
Composer Arnold Schoenberg called her voice a "miracle," and she gained critical acclaim for her portrayal of the Wood Dove in his Gurrelieder.
Bampton once said, "I think I lived in the most wonderful period, really, of singing and other things."
