Album Notes
Thank you for your interest! All proceeds from this album will be donated to the Avon Breast Center at Johns Hopkins Hopsital. This is a collection of some of my favorite songs and arias. I have included a wide variety of songs, ending with the powerful 'Kaddish' ( hebrew prayer) and the beautiful 'How Can I Keep from Singing', the traditional hymn that inspired this album and inspires me still. I would like to thank John Wickelgren for his sensitive piano accompaniments, and Joel Niswander accompanying me with his guitar on the title track. I hope that you enjoy listening.

Angela Thompson's voice has been described as having "dulcet tones" as well as "thrilling" capabilities. She has been performing for many years in musical theater, opera, operetta, recitals and concerts. She has written two musicals for children.

Program notes: The exciting 'Love is where you find it' and 'Til there was you' are both popular favorites.
The desolation of lost love can be heard in Ponce's 'Estrellita', and in 'O del mio amato ben' and 'Ah, non credea mirarti' by Donaudy and Bellini respectively

In 'Ah, je vivre', Juliette sings of her joy of being alive on the night of the party where she meets Romeo in Gounod's "Romeo and Juliette".
Passion, as only Puccini can convey it, is found as Mimi introduces herself to Rodolfo in 'Mi chiamano Mimi', and as Liu tells Calaf of her love for him in 'Signore, Ascolta'.

'So an'chio la virtu magica' is Donizetti at his best, as Norina tells us that she too has a "magic" way with suitors!
The hauntingly beautiful melody of 'The singer' is a vivid description combining music and lyrics with a contemporary flare.
