\How about composing a new Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra?" suggested Ian Maclay, the General Manager of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I've always loved composing for full symphony orchestra, so this was a challenge that simply had to be met! I conducted the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the first live performance at London's Cadogan Hall with Hayley Westenra adding her special touch to the song and Stephen Fry narrating in his own inimitable fashion. The result of that live performance is this CD. It was a truly memorable and exciting experience, and I hope you enjoy listening to Different Voices as much as I enjoyed composing the piece.' - Debbie Wiseman

"Westenra has an absolutely stunning voice, the sort that really can send goosebumps up and down your spine.... Westenra has a truly special voice - one that could be listened to all day in fact." Music OMH

"Both thoroughly enjoyable stories are read beautifully and precisely by [Redgrave and Fry], but the enthralling part is the expressive and passionate music composed by Debbie Wiseman.... These two wonderful, swirling compositions are full of wonderful phrases and passages that take over from the narrative for extended periods and are never far from centre stage." Music from the Movies on Oscar Wilde: Fairy Tales"
