Susan Graham: Carnegie Hall
4.3 out of 5 stars with 17 reviews
Susan Graham has firmly established herself as one of our leading mezzos in opera and recital. Her voice, infinitely varied, perfectly focused, and produced, has the mellow glow of burnished bronze, but at the top she narrows her vibrato to give it a brighter, more intense quality. This live recording of her Carnegie Hall concert last April combines total vocal control with the spontaneity and excitement of a performance--complete with audience reactions--and displays her stylistic versatility,
Lauridsen: Lux Aeterna

4.8 out of 5 stars with 29 reviews
Modern choral music for amateur singers may be America's biggest musical underground. That's the only explanation of why Grammy-nominated composer Morten Lauridsen can claim that his works are some of the most often-performed new pieces in years, although few among the East Coast intelligentsia have ever heard of him. Like the similarly popular John Rutter, Lauridsen inhabits an extremely conservative style directed simply and single-mindedly at showing off the beauty of choral singing while it

Etoile Du Nord: Le Miracle Medieval
4.3 out of 5 stars with 22 reviews
The programme proposed here by Calliope is secular, poetic and amorous, based on the works reporting the miracles of the Virgin Mary in medieval France. The instrumental music is based on pre-existing vocal sources, using medieval teaching methods: learning by heart, improvisation and knowledge of rhetoric.
Tales, legends and miracles were as important to religious life in The Middle Ages as liturgy and theological treatises. Like stained-galss windows in churches and cathedrals, the
