This is from Caruso's best voice period. Glowing, powerful but mellow, and absolute tenor timbre! Yes, here he is at his prime as a singer, and this voice is what made the whole world love him. Really - listen to the high C in the end of the aria: More brilliantly it can't be sung. Later Caruso became a more mature opera artist, formed his voice to the role he performed. But his pure voice was on top in 1902. As said, mellow, but powerfully brightly shining - in one word: velvet!
