Erin Morley receives high acclaim for her first solo album!


Erin Morley is receiving high acclaim for her first solo album released by Orchid Classics:
‘What’s most striking is her seemingly artless precision, however stratospherically high they take her voice.’
‘Her crystalline sound melts into liquid phrases that allow the words to come across strongly; moreover, her tone is full-bodied enough to carry more expansive songs.’
**** – The Guardian

The coloratura soprano Morley’s first recital disc is like an enchanting walk in a garden bursting with blossom and colour. Each piece showcases Morley’s immaculate technique and remarkable control. An absolute delight.’
The Sunday Times

Her voice is opalescent, a font of sheer, innocent colors, with bell-like clarity, pristine runs and notes in alt that spin like mad. Her singing has an instrumental purity, but it is also tenderly observant.’
‘Morley gently tugs on the rhythm and shades the delicate melody, sounding both technically immaculate and emotionally fragile in an album of predictable loveliness and unexpected poignancy.’
New York Times

Morley thrives on the ambitiousness of her solo debut. In Brahms’ “Lerchengesang” she imbues her voice with a deeply felt sadness. By contrast, in “Neath My Lattice Through the Night” she delights with formidable joie de vivre topped by the sky high tones of the title-giving Rose-in-Bloom’s cadenza.’
‘Morley demonstrates the impressive bandwidth of her coloraturas, each coated with the warm timbre of her slender yet remarkably full-bodied soprano voice. In the Milhaud piece she adds to her virtuosic display of coloratura runs, an uncanny feel for the French language, clearly articulated and intelligently phrased.’
