'Primavera' means Springtime in Spanish. It is a metaphor for the bright new peaceful age that is now dawning around the world. I love opera and the classics for their enchanting musical beauty and springtime fragrance. It's my desire to represent all nations in this CD, yet this time I mainly chose songs from countries that bear the footprints of Abraham: Christians, Jews and Muslims. The hope of the world rests on the reconciliation of these historical brothers under God, the longsuffering Parent of all people and faiths.
