Great voices of world-renowned and not so well-known singers are featured on this edition of New Sounds. Hear operatic powerhouses Jesse Norman and Kathleen Battle on music from Vangelis’ Mythodea, written for the NASA mission to Mars, and kind of an answer to the Flower Duet from the opera “Lakme”. There’s also a song by Sigur Ros from the “Angels of the Universe” soundtrack, and atmospheric English text in a song by Londoner Pete Wyer. Plus, songs by David Sylvian, Tom Waits, and David Byrne.
