Karen Carpenter sings Ave Maria..Original pinner writes.."Best version of the song ever. Simple and beautiful. The orchestration is amazing, and then there's the voice". Yep..she was great! She died thirty years ago today 2/4/1983. May your memory be Eastern Orthodox prayer for the dead! Caption by Mary Mary's Market~~

The Carpenters were such a part of my teen years. Many an angst filled moment I spent in my room listening and singing along. Karen was an alto like me and I loved their gentle music. While other teens were blasting out their ears with rock and roll, I had my kind and gentle Carpenters.
