Sento nel core: an old torch song

I decided to dedicate today’s selection, “Sento nel core,” to my friend and colleague, Michelle Markwart Deveaux. I know Michelle through the Speakeasy Cooperative, a wonderfully supportive and multi-talented group of independent voice teachers which Michelle founded. Michelle and the other voice teachers in SECO have been there for me in so many ways as I have transitioned from a career in higher education to life as a small business owner. Why this song for Michelle? There’s no hidden meaning really, it’s just that she seems like someone who appreciates a good torch song, even if it is three hundred years old. And this one literally has a torch in it.

I feel sharp sadness in my heart which disturbs my peace. A torch shines which ignites my soul. If it is not love, it will be love.
