Some Pitying Angels.. feminine monodramas for soprano and piano

Soprano Jennifer Krabbe and Pianist Lara Dodds-Eden (winners of the 2014 Jim and Charlotte Norcop Prize in Song and Gwendolyn Koldovsky Prize in Piano Accompaniment) share a programme including:

- the sensual Schubert 'Suleika' songs to texts by Marianne von Willemer

- the fatal gamble of Poulenc's setting of Cocteau's 'La Dame de Monte Carlo'

- Libby Larsen's chilling 'Try Me, Good King', songs set to words spoken by Henry VIII's queens 

- and an expostulation from the Virgin Mary by Purcell
