    He had a wonderful gift of communication and made it possible for people to enjoy operatic music. He'll be sadly missed.

    I couldn't agree more David, he did wonderful things for the world of opera, made it accessible to so many people. Very sad news indeed.

    He definitely had the most stunning voice, which could be surprisingly tender at times, as well as the heroic style he was most known for. It was just unfortunate that his bulk rather hampered him on stage, and made him less convincing than others such as Placido Domingo.

    A sad day for the world of Opera and, indeed, many more. He will certainly never be forgotten for sure. RIP

    No indeed. I'm no fan of opera, despite having an professional opera singer in the family, but Pavarotti was always someone who could stop me in my tracks to listen. He was definitely one of the greatest - perhaps the greatest - opera singers ever IMHO.

    Not just his voice either - he had an amazing presence! I couldn't understand what he was singing but I believed him - if you know what I mean!?
