Yma Sumac sings classical music on occasion in her live shows but she has never recorded it. Her voice is completely natural (untrained) so her breathing and other techniques that opera singers are trained to use are things she has never done.
If you take a look at the Latest News area of SunVirgin.com, you will see that we are attempting to release a CD of all live material. It will have some of her classical pieces as well as some of her own compositions and others in between. It will not contain anything that was ever released on her other albums and will span 1942 to 1990, so will be all new material to most fans.
Note: this archive entry descrides a CD that was never produced.
