Notes and Editorial Reviews

"It has been a busy recording year for celebrated American soprano Renee Fleming. In May, there was the "Haunted Heart" album with pianist Fred Hersch and guitarist Bill Frisell; Sept. 13 saw the long-awaited release of Strauss' opera "Daphne," conducted by Semyon Bychkov with Fleming in the title role. Now comes an album of easy-to-love sacred repertoire that includes such favorites as Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," Schubert's "Ave Maria," Franck's "Panis Angelicus" and selections from Handel's "Messiah." Joined by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Andreas Delfs, as Read more well as guest artists including mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, violinist Mark O'Connor and the ensemble London Voices, the virtuosic Fleming simply soars through this music with her justly celebrated, utterly lovely voice. Sure to be a hit."
