I am much touched by this reception

Thanks to all who wrote such kind words about last night’s update.

I said that updates would be posted more frequently from now on, and I hope to live up to that. A revision is out this evening, which adds Rebecca Hains’s excellent solo recital disc, The Gilbert & Sullivan Soprano Arias, which came out in 2007.

As we note in our review:

Rebecca Hains is an amateur, but her voice is practically perfect for this material. She sings with a lovely, clear tone, and with a bright, forward sound that is ideal for making the words heard. She sings securely and without apparent effort throughout her entire range. Her sense of phrasing is nearly always spot-on. She is at her best in the arias that exploit her skill at fioritura, though there is really not a bad number on the hour-long disc.
