Mezzo soprano Joyce DiDonato beautifully interprets a rarely heard Rossini solo cantata, Joan of Arc. Rossini wrote this cantata for a singer of formidable technique and makes Joan jump through every conceivable hoop to express her sense of vision and determination. It is a joy to hear DiDonato run up and down the scales and hit the high notes portraying Joan's religious and patriotic ecstasies.
