Notes & Reviews:

David Stock's dramatic cantata for mezzo-soprano and orchestra, 'A Little Miracle,' has been described by its librettist, Bess Weldon, as an "operatic monodrama." The story is her own creation, but it plays out against the very real and familiar theme of parent and child hiding and attempting to escape during the German war of annihilation against Europe's Jews. Here, the tale is woven around the dual miracle of birth itself and of survival through the faith and courage sustained by the memory of a mother's song.
