Notes and Editorial Reviews

Nicole Cabell, the 2005 Winner of the BBC Singer of the World Competition in Cardiff and Decca recording artist, is fast becoming one of the most sought-after lyric sopranos of today. Her solo debut album, “Soprano” was named “Editor’s Choice” by Gramophone and has received an incredible amount of critical acclaim and several prestigious awards.

In this CD, entitled “Silver Rain,” Nicole channels her love and admiration for the music of one of America’s most beloved composers, Ricky Ian Gordon, and together they create this collection of songs on poetry by Langston Hughes, that is both a thing of beauty and a labor of love.
