Here she is in one of my favourite operas, Berlioz's Les Troyens, as the prophetess Cassandra. Rest in peace, Ms Norman.

I'll always remember watching TV in France in July, 1989 during a tour with the group I was in, and seeing Ms. Norman in Paris singing the definitive Les Marseillaise . She was absolutely amazing. It can be found online.
