“Three Arias for Soprano” is excerpted from Women of Valor, which is a celebration of women from the Old Testament. The cantata was inspired by a midrash (biblical commentary) on Proverbs where each line of the biblical text from Proverbs 31 represents a biblical woman. The three arias represent Leah, Rachel and Ruth.
