Notes & Reviews:

Canadian mezzo-soprano Julia Morgan has a burgeoning career in opera and recital. She was selected to study with Dame Anne Evans at the Britten-Pears Young Artist Program in Aldeburgh and was the recipient of the Johann Strauss Scholarship to attend and perform at the Franz-Schubert-Institut.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Ms Morgan has a fine, rich voice and her German diction is faultless. She sings nearly every song on this collection in exactly the same way, with more dramatic emphasis than true feeling. The delicacy of Mahler's sustained, exposed writing in 'Ich Atmet einen Linden Duft' and 'Liebst Du um Schonheit' draws from her something closer to a true sense of line. The piano work is technically adept.
