Superb one-off; Luciano Pavarotti: 1936-2007.

PEOPLE who wondered whether Pavarotti really was a great opera singer have been left in no doubt, as the experts shower praise on one of music's top tenors.

"Pavarotti had everything - the voice, the presence. His voice was so rich, so glorious," said Elaine Padmore, director at the Royal Opera House.

"He had great power but also great warmth. He was the complete, unique package.

"There are a lot of great tenors but none have a voice as distinctive as his. There'll never be another Pavarotti."

Australian soprano Dame Joan Sutherland said of the great tenor's voice: "It was incredible to stand next to it and sing along with it."

British soprano Lesley Garrett said: "He was the biggest and the best." And Welsh star Bryn Terfel added: "His Premiership voice put us all into a lower division."
