Notes & Reviews:

Such praise is entirely typical of critical reaction to American soprano Nicole Cabell's ravishing singing, whether from operatic, concert or recital stages worldwide. Indeed, this captivating artist has taken the classical world by storm since she won the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World award in 2005. Drawn strongly to the French vocal repertoire, Nicole - in this, her first recording for Delos - explores the world of the chanson, and its direct descendant, the mélodie: France's answer to the German Lied, or art song. Among the finest of mélodie composers are represented: Georges Bizet, Henri Duparc, Franz Liszt and Maurice Ravel. Nicole's rich, silky-smooth voice and beautifully nuanced interpretations are supported with sensitivity and elegance by pianist Craig Terry.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Nicole Cabell's rich, smooth voice shines in the French song literature. Here the diction is clear and the voice even and clear from top to bottom. Her 'Sheherazade' is also excellent, gentle and almost understated. Terry offers stable support, orchestral in the 'Sheherazade' and light and bell-like in the Greek Folk Songs. Cabell fans won't be disappointed, and the program is a fine introduction to her artistry for anyone unfamiliar with her golden voice.
