Bella Hardy – Written In Green by Proper Music Distribution

“Surely no-one has any right to be writing songs with the sophistication of Sylvie Sovay, so early in their career…delivered with a mastery of melancholic melody and lyrical portraiture that brings to mind no less than Lennon and McCartney” – English Dance Song magazine

Manchester Camerata with soprano Rebecca Lea perform Italian composer Luciano Berio’s extraordinary arrangements of folk music from various countries and other songs.
