Notes & Reviews:

Soprano Suzie LeBlanc sings the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop in 10 stunning settings by four Canadian composers, each of whom shines a new light on words that have exquisite clarity and finely-wrought observation. Suzie's voice has as many beautiful colors as the images she describes in Silken Water: The Elizabeth Bishop Suit; Sunday 4am; Sandpiper; A short, slow life; and Four Songs.
