Classic arias sent soaring by the heavenly voice of the aria-award winning soprano, Sara Macliver.

It is an angelic voice of the rarest purity and now, soprano Sara Macliver's album features her heavenly vocal instrument in the most diverse repertoire of her career.

From Handel's immortal Let the Bright Seraphim through to Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now, the recording features new recordings matched with selected highlights from Sara's stellar earlier recordings.

Highlights include Mozart's sublime Laudate Dominum and the Bailero from Canteloube's Songs of the Auvergne alongside Bach and Purcell's greatest set-pieces for soprano.
