A brief glance at the list of contents is enough to reveal who the singer is only Anne Sofie von Otter could have come up with a programme as varied and wide-ranging.

And only von Otter could hold it together seamlessly by finding the resonances between these very different pieces, and bringing them out with a rare ability of embracing different singing styles and expressive registers: to paraphrase Bernstein in his A Simple Song, Anne Sofie von Otter never fails to sing like she likes to sing.

From Liszt to Pärt and from Mahler s Resurrection Symphony to Richard Rodgers Sound of Music, von Otter is supported by her long-time accompanist Bengt Forsberg, here at the organ instead of his usual piano.

At various points in the programme they are joined by a number of musical friends, in the organ loft of St James s Church in central Stockholm the very church where the young von Otter began her singing career as a chorister and, together with Forsberg, gave one of her very first public concerts.
