A friend who always wants to know what's the next big thing in music e-mailed me yesterday. She wanted to know if the soprano singing in the Vesperae solennes de confessore at Mostly Mozart had made any recordings. The singer is Lucy Crowe, she's made some recordings and yes, she's the next big thing. Crowe's Handel aria album will be released by Harmonia Mundi in November, but here's "Let the Bright Seraphim" from Handel's Samson to tide us over. Oh yes, she is the next big thing.
