Notes & Reviews:

This album of contemporary works for solo voice with occasional electronics is a snapshot of all that is best in the world of new vocal music. The six works by four composers are all different in every possible way, except that they are written for the solo voice. In each of these pieces, the exquisite soprano Elizabeth Hilliard demonstrates amazing virtuosity, vocal dexterity and amazing control over techniques such as microtones and lengthy glissandi.
