Kate Royal's second recording for EMI Classics is Midsummer Night, an atmospheric recital collection focusing on female characters in 20th century opera and operetta, reflecting their pain and ecstasy in love. The programme ranges from well known turn-of-the-century works by Dvořák (Song to the Moon from Rusalka) and Lehár (Vilja from The Merry Widow) to Midsummer Night, from William Alwyns opera Miss Julie. Edward Gardner conducts the English National Opera Orchestra with guest appearances by Thomas Allen, Andrew Staples and the Crouch End Festival Chorus.

Described by The Times as "in a class of her own", voices of the calibre of Kate Royal don't come along very often. She's at home in both opera and recital, has an elegant voice and a magnetic stage presence. Kate Royal is already familiar to the record buying public through her participation in Paul McCartneys award-winning Ecce Cor Meum, and also appeared on the best-selling Kings College Choir disc; Purcell Music for Queen Mary. Kate Royals debut recital is an elegant selection of songs and arias including selections from Canteloubes Chants dAuvergne, Delibess popular Chanson Espagnole from Les Filles de Cadix, arias from Stravinskys The Rakes Progress, lieder by Richard Strauss, and Rodrigos beautiful Cuatro Madrigales Amatorios. Kate Royal is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and the National Opera Studio and has wowed audiences and critics alike with her appearances at Glyndebourne, the Wigmore Hall, Edinburgh Festival and more recently the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in Thomas Adess The Tempest. She also appeared at the English National Opera in the title role of a brand new production of Monteverdis last opera, The Coronation of Poppea and is set to return to Covent Garden in January 2008 as Pamina in Die Zauberflöte.
