CBS Records Masterworks MK 44981 (compact disc). These 15 ("Terra e Mare" is sung in two versions) rare and lovely songs find Domingo in his most relaxed good voice. The tessitura, gratefully low most of the time, enables him to lavish his burnished sound and expert projection of the texts on the charming music. Five of the songs are recorded here for the first time.

For years Julius Rudel has had a running joke with himself: After more than five decades of conducting operatic performances and having presided over as large a repertory of stage works as anyone in memory, Rudel has never assayed Wagner's "Parsifal," a work he has wanted to conduct since he was a very young musician in his hometown of Vienna. Rudel reiterated the joke recently, but this time he specified that he is not frustrated by the lack of a "Parsifal" in his long career.

Conductor Christopher Keene, whose appointment to succeed Beverly Sills as general director of New York City Opera effective March 15 was announced Thursday, says he has made no long-term plans for the company, but "will spend the next six months thinking about it."

There are some horses in tonight's "Christmas With Flicka" program on PBS, but the titular Flicka is American mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade. Her hourlong Christmas special for "Great Performances" (at 8 p.m. on Channel 24 and at 9 p.m. on Channels 28 and 15) is as pretty as a post card--and not much livelier. The New Jersey native visits idyllic St. Wolfgang, a lakeside village in the Austrian Alps, in the company of two local children and three guests.

Publicist and artists manager Edgar Vincent, who represented tenor Placido Domingo, soprano Beverly Sills and dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov amid a host of A-list singers, conductors and instrumentalists, died Thursday at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. He was 90. Vincent died of a blood clot while recovering from hip replacement surgery, according to his longtime professional partner, Patrick Farrell. "There are no words to express the personal loss I feel, nor the professional loss to the world of opera," Domingo, the general director of the Los Angeles Opera, said in a statement.
