Maybe that's part of what makes it hard for me to feel the full sense of loss on this one: Pavarotti scarcely existed in our consciousness outside the Pav/Domingo binary anymore, and...it's not the time to dwell on who was the greater artist, but it's not even really a question.

Very eloquently stated.

The one thing I omitted from what I wrote last night that I wish I'd remembered to mention was that Pavarotti's many charitable efforts late in life were definitely examples of a celebrity who genuinely used his status to effect change and help others.

You're right, it's not. Pavarotti had the sacred fire, and the other guy -- as estimable as he is -- doesn't.

No comparison.
