Following Agave’s Grammy-nominated success with American Originals: A New World, A New Canon, the ensemble offers another powerful recording of music by underrepresented composers: In Her Hands. Acclaimed soprano Michele Kennedy joins Agave for her solo recording debut in a celebration of music by women from throughout history. The works range from an emotionally-charged lament by Baroque virtuosa Barbara Strozzi to the arresting and intimate songs of Black American composers Florence Price and Margaret Bonds. Together, Agave and Kennedy weave a tapestry of four centuries of music, telling women’s stories through poetry and sound, in images of love, motherhood, and the Feminine Divine.
