Are they lacking composers and singers in heaven? Leong Yoon Pin’s departure was not that long ago and now, I just received news of the death of a wonderful Taiwanese-German soprano whom I’ve had the good fortune of meeting, work with and learn from in the 2010 Taipei Bach Festival. Life can be full of surprises indeed, a real reminder that our time on earth is a short one where one should live life to the fullest. Life is too short to live unhappily. Mdm 佩穎, Requiescant in pace. Thank you for blessing us with your beautiful soprano voice during the Taiwan St John Passion. Your generous spirit and humble outlook is an inspiration to all who’ve had the good fortune of working with you. You will be missed!
