As one might expect, this recording is a thing of great beauty, subtly chosen and blended by performers of impeccable pedigree and virtuosity. Catherine King has a voice that many singers would die -- or even kill -- for. It is absolutely flawless, stunningly accurate, and its quality has a uniformity across the range that would make any other singer spit. She is well paired with Jacob Heringman’s equally subtle and artful playing. Perhaps too perfect? There was something lacking, I felt: after a few tracks I began to long for something that sounded a little different. Too much perfection can give anyone indigestion.
