- One of the most beautiful voices of all time. I particularly love his I'll Walk With God, and Golden Days.
- In 1960's, a convicted man here in Philippines about to be executed by electric chair was asked for a last minute request before his execution. He said, "I wanna hear Mario Lanza".
"In fifty years people will recognise Lanza for the great artist he is."
- Lawrence Tibbett (in 1950)
Mario Lanza's voice, combined with photos of Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour from the movie "Somewhere in Time", combine to form a lovely musical and visual treat.
Mario Lanza sings "Yours is My Heart Alone" with incredible beauty and sensitivity. Long may his legacy live through his movies, his many recordings, videos on YouTube and through other media outlets. His voice may never be equaled. Hedda Hopper, well-known gossip columnist, believed that "There had never been anyone like Mario, and I doubt whether we shall ever see his like again."
"Yours is My Heart Alone" ("Dein ist mein ganzes Herz") is a show tune from the operetta "The Land of Smiles" (Das Land des Lächelns - 1929). Franz Lehar wrote the music and the original German lyrics were written by Ludwig Herzer and Fritz Löhner. The English lyrics were written by Harry B. Smith.
The English lyrics are:
Yours is my heart alone
And without you life holds no charm
Yours, every thought I own
Our love the theme of every dream
Love that makes life seem worthwhile
Dwells in your eyes and the spell of your smile
There is no song half so sweet to me
As your voice whispering, "I love you, Dear"
When far away or near you
In dreams I see and hear you
And yielding to your fascination
I kneel to you in adoration dear, you alone
My queen shall reign and my heart you enchain
All day I sigh for you and I dream on the night
I live or die for you, my adored vision bright

The photographs of Mario Lanza were taken from the MGM movie "The Great Caruso". The movie is available for purchase from Turner Classic Movies.
The photographs of Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour were taken from the movie "Somewhere in Time". It was directed by Jeannot Szwarc. It is available from MCA Home Video. It is a lovely movie set in 1912 that truly tugs at your heart strings.
-In English, you wrote: "This video is beautiful, a dream. Perfect harmony of melody in the voice of Mario Lanza, with delicate paintings. Congratulations for good taste."
Lygia, Thank you for your kind comment. As a traditional painter, I always enjoy seaching through other artists' work to find what I consider to be art which is appropriate to the song lyrics. I am very happy that you like my choice of paintings. May my personal art choices never disappoint you. My Kindest Regards, Sandra.
