“The stunner of the afternoon was Baber. Her voice is incredibly pure and sounds nearly effortless; the texts she sang came across with remarkable clarity. While her performance of Josquin des Prez’s “Ave Maria” had an angelic brightness and dedication, elsewhere she showed an ability to seduce; in “Al alva venid,” a lament for an absent lover, every note seemed to ache for a future meeting.”
