The Talking Point series provides an opportunity to discuss things in English, exchange ideas, and learn from each other.
They say it is the universal language of mankind. They say without it, life would be a mistake. They say where words fail, it speaks. Let’s talk about music…
Or…I would like rather to talk about one of my favorite singers…
Last night, I thought : “Tomorrow, I’ll post an article about one of my favorite singers. I want to share this with the members because she is a great artist and I would like everyone to know her! (Of course, you know it’s a woman now…)
And… It’s insane! Pejmân has this good idea for us!
In parentheses, if I’d wanted to talk with you about one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard, it would be…
… Shindler’s List, Concerto for f.and h. by Mozart, music folk of Tri Yann or Marjan Farsad and so many others that I love…
But I would like to talk to you about…Joan BAEZ!
Born on the 9th of January 1941, she is an American singer, songwriter, musician and activist. Her contemporary folk music often includes of protest or social justice. I love so much her voice, hers texts, her engagement, the woman…

I love her voice so much.
And could we write:
“I so love listening her voice.”?
Yes, you can. It’s informal conversational English.
And you should say, “listening to her voice.”
One of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard is the “Flower Duet” (French: Duo des fleurs / Sous le dôme épais) in Léo Delibes’ opera Lakmé.
Here is a live performance in Paris.
