Pie Jesu - Release date: 13th September 2004
Leigh plays to her strengths.....she makes a pure, heavenly sound in Rejoice Greatly (Messiah) and the Ave Maria from Verdi's Otello. But she also surprises with much darker colours in Gershwin's Summertime and gives a wonderfully sly and flirtatious account of Una voca poco fa (Barber of Seville). An impressive recital.

Operatunity: The Winners - Release date: 27th October 2003
A year after Channel 4's excellent Operatunity series, this delightful disc brings us up to date on the development of the two winners in that contest of would-be opera-singers, Jane Gilchrist and Denise Leigh.
This is a generous and well-chosen sequence of 14 arias divided between the two, plus three duets, the Countess and Susanna's duet from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, the Evening Hymn from Humperdinck's Hansel und Gretel and the duet from Delibes's Lakme made famous by BA's TV advertisement, all beautifully done.
