Review in Musicworks of “She Lost Her Voice That’s How We Knew”

A wonderful  review of the CD recording of my chamber opera She Lost Her Voice That’s How We Knew appeared in Musicworks magazine.  Reviewer Cecilia Livingston writes:  

Frances White’s music is spectacularly beautiful: soprano Kristin Norderval’s voice blooms through the electronics’ drowned tonality, as the piece explores “the necessity of putting into words experiences that are beyond words, or where words have been suppressed.”
With the clarity and elegance (and, in places, the gorgeous vocal polyphony) many listeners will associate with early music, this startling new sound world offers music so atmospheric and sensuous it is almost fragrant.
