Kate Royal has a most beautiful voice and is a very accomplished recitalist. Ann and I were very happy to sing the Schumann duets. It is always a joy to sing with her. It is also lovely to hear Lydia Teuscher and Daniela Lehner who took part in my master classes in Lübeck and to see how well they are getting on. And Stephan Loges sings beautifully!  FL
