Notes & Reviews:

Nicole Cabell, the 2005 Winner of the BBC Singer of the World Competition in Cardiff 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. She can be frequently heard at the Metropolitan Opera and the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Oper Köln and the Deutsche Oper, Berlin, among other prestigious stages of the world. 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.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The soprano Nicole Cabell, who has one of the most beautiful soprano voices to emerge in the last few years. Ms Cabell's luscious voice and crystal- clear enunciation make her a perfect interpreter of the 21 songs included on the "Silver Rain" program, all based on poems by Langston Hughes. I feel that Mr Gordon, Mr Hughes, and Ms Cabell create some magic.
