cover "Gates of Silence" - Chamber music composed by Susan Botti
Performed by Susan Botti and The Blakemore Trio,
with poetry by Linda Gregerson.

"... ingeniously developed...The remarkably malleable quality of Botti's voice, working against and yet in conjunction with the Blakemore Trio, expresses far more than one would ever guess from just reading the words. She is undoubtedly an outstanding singer as well as a fascinating composer...Gates of Silence is one of the most remarkable suites I have heard by a composer of today: expressive, fascinating, and very well-written music of extraordinary quality, at times challenging, at others easy to absorb, but always fascinating and evolving in the mind of a remarkable woman. I cannot recommend this one highly enough. "
   -- Lynn René Bayley, Fanfare
