The Sound of Thunder 大地一聲雷 is maintained by Bevin Chu, a high baritone student (amateur) of Bel Canto voice technique.
The Sound of Thunder is dedicated to Opera, Operetta, Art Songs, Show Tunes, the Great American Songbook, Canzone Napoletana, and other forms of vocal music.
The Sound of Thunder consists of songs I have learned and intend to learn, or in the case of gender specific songs for female vocalists, songs I happen to like. Posts include the lyrics, links to some of the better video or audio performances of the song, and to free downloads of the sheet music — if available.
To help myself understand and memorize the lyrics, I type them out, indicating the phrasing and breath marks.
I post them online primarily to make them easier for myself to archive and access. But if fellow music lovers find them useful, so much the better!
