Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This collection of new works for voice by British and Irish composers demonstrates the wide range of styles and structures available even within the genre of solo vocal music and also gives an opportunity to hear the exquisite and virtuosic singing of Elizabeth Hilliard. In some works she is accompanied by discreet electronic sounds and by overdubbing her voice. This album is a fine way to explore new vocal music which is both exploratory and individualistic but also attractive and sensuous." - Metier Records "This collection of new works for voice by British and Irish composers demonstrates the wide range of styles and structures available even within the genre of solo vocal music and also gives an opportunity to hear the exquisite and virtuosic singing of Elizabeth Hilliard.
