‘With Voice of Nature Fleming has, in the enforced pause of a pandemic, taken the opportunity to look around her, and to examine how art can address some of our shared challenges. She has combined her deep love of the art song with an urgent impulse to heed science alerting us to the climate crisis.’ - Charles Isherwood

‘The music on the album begins in a time almost two centuries ago, when people had a profound connection to the beauty of nature. Now we have reached a moment when we see all too clearly the effects of our own activity, and the fragility of our environment.’ - Renée Fleming
