It seems like forever since we were last in Sorrento, and I am feeling decidedly ‘homesick’.   Not sure when we’ll be visiting Campania again, but not this year unfortunately.  So being in a nostalgic frame of mind I have been on Youtube again.  So here we have 5 very different versions of the same song.  The most authentic really is the one by Beniamino Gigli (although he was not in fact Neapolitan).  Despite my previous comments regarding anglicising song lyrics, I quite like the version by Dino Paul Crocetti.  I think of all of these Pavarotti’s version is my favourite.  This was recorded when he was at the height of his powers, and is truly beautiful.
