Breaking: Much-loved American singer dies

The death has been announced of one of the great American baritones, the Met’s trademark Scarpia, Cornell Macneil. He was 88, sang 26 roles and recorded powerfully for Decca with Karajan, Serafin and Solti.

He made his Scala debut in 1959 but made relatively scarce appearances in Europe. He was home-loving guy.
