A great voice and a fine singer. He was living on borrowed time, and his time ran out. He'll be missed.

Very sad. He will be missed by yours truly: he was a great singer, no question.

This is a tragic loss. He was an exceptional artist and will always remain in my memory as one of the great ones.
Thank you, Dimitri, for many special musical moments.
Rest in peace. :(

Agreed. The quintessential or ideal Russian bass.

He will be laid to rest in Moscow. It's just bloody terrible.

Dmitri Hvorostovsky's entire funeral service has been uploaded to the late singer's Facebook page if anybody wants to watch it. Very upsetting, but emphasizing the importance of ritual.
