From the first moment, Clare McCaldin lived within, and drew us into, the atmosphere, the emotion and the meaning of each song. She was in command of a natural, ringing voice of great range of pitch, tone and dynamics, always at the service of the music. Gesture and expression of a natural actor were integral to the interpretation.
