    Should inspire other singers to add vocals to instrumentals.

    I have had another listen and thought about it a bit more.
    All in all she handled it quite well. But no better than I have heard before with other vocalists doing much the same thing.
    It it probably unusual for an Indian to take on a European classical work for this.
    Should it be encouraged ? and does it add a useful dimension to classical works?
    On that, the jury is out. In that I do not think it added much at all to the work. But it might broaden the appeal of the work to others not well versed in the classics

    You have a point. Yet does that not mean that all our efforts are useless? Can we not do something just to enjoy and let others enjoy? I do not think much of this girl's singing capability since I know that Indian classical singers can take their voice almost anywhere and repeat that with utmost precision any number times. This girl, in my opinion, is a novice. But her output is novel and I wanted to share.

    Music does not need words, IMO.

    That depends...
    Just about every thing Schubert wrote can be enhanced by words... and usually was. That is the way he wrote his music.
    even his orchestral works sound like songs. Lieder is a pinnacle amongst musical artforms.

    With out words, Gilbert and Sullivan operettas would be no more than a collection catchy tunes.
    As a serious orchestral composer Sullivan was a failure.

    Song was the first music. Everything else follows from that.

    voice and music can combine
    some singers can sing with perfect diction and clarity and control, in languages not even their own.

    Are you sure?
    I thought the pirates were physicists.
