Sopranos Ingrid Heyn and Katrena Mitchell got together and worked out that there was enough unperformed classical vocal duets for two sopranos to keep them busy for years. That's just as well, because Ingrid and Katrena joined forces to become 'Sounds Sublime' and immediately launched into their many-year mission to boldly sing where no one had sung before. Is there any reason why opera should be boring? Or condescending? Or an elitist thing? NO! Any reason why early music from the 1700s or earlier should sound passionless? Tedious? Unexciting? NO! With determination, zeal, absolute love for classical vocal repertoire, and the fixed delight in the music of geniuses whose works define the measure of human achievement, Sounds Sublime searches out the obscure, the well-known (rescuing the all-too-familiar stuff that's been sung to death and really NEEDS a resurrection approach!), and the flat-out utterly, utterly, utterly gorgeous. Opera, madrigals, arias, simple songs, deep and meaningful art songs, playful little excerpts - Sounds Sublime pour their silk-and-velvet voices into performing them with intellectual spice, historically informed technique, and the sort of soul-biting passion that brings forgotten music to life... Sounds Sublime... Because Music Ought To Be A Banquet For The Senses...
