NPR Music has named enargeia as one of the top 50 best albums of 2021.
"Mezzo-soprano Emily D'Angelo might be prized for singing Mozart and Handel in the world's great opera houses, but for her debut album she ditched the standard repertoire for music composed solely by women across nine centuries. It's a gutsy move that has paid off in one of the most arresting, beautiful vocal albums in recent memory. D'Angelo's voice, one of creamy muscularity, is backed by chamber orchestra, string quartet and electronic instruments. The album is grounded by the ancient but timeless sounds of Hildegard von Bingen, and soars with recent works by Missy Mazzoli, Sarah Kirkland Snider and Iceland's Hildur Guðnadóttir. —Tom Huizenga"
