MEZZO-SOPRANO

Dives month in the clouds.
Time to go to bed.

"Fell asleep swallows a long time,
And people sleep in the houses.
The moon looks in your window,
Found you in the dark..."

The tune "Lullaby", a melodic and majestic, calm and thoughtful, as if floating above the accompaniment. Sings her beautiful female voice is deep, rich, velvety mezzo-soprano. He loved the dramatic soprano, but less saturated.
