Actually, I thought of Kay when discussing coming here out of GEnie. Kay had known me in the Classical Music Forum there, and told me about this BBS when GEnie announced it was going to end. We had both been playing the "Classical Jeopardy" on GEnie. Va, pensiero is just beautiful music. They sing the first stanza quietly, and suddenly they go to fortissimo. It gets me every time.
There was a movement at one point to make the song the national anthem of Italy.
