AllMusic Review by

A Soprano Inspired is a wonderful collection that demonstrates Lesley Garrett's excellent taste and deep talent. Garrett tackles a challenging collection of material, ranging from opera and baroque classical to contemporary gospel and show tunes, all tied together by a spiritual theme. Throughout it all, her soprano is supple, surprising and utterly captivating -- this is serious music that will appeal to a wide audience, as it is thoroughly accessible.
