Do you believe in Soul Mates? Whilst listening to this moving collection of art songs, your soul and heart will open, tuning in to attract your soul mate.
Désirée Regina’s mesmerizing voice and magical lyrics, together with Margaret Brandman’s sensitive performance and melodic composition, have created a spell-binding “Soul Mate” CD.
These 6 Magical songs will embrace and attract the one meant for you.
It worked for so well for Désirée, that we were encouraged to release these intimate spell-binding songs, in the desire that they will do the same for you.
Désirée Regina has been called by Le Figaro "Sparkling and genuinely breathtaking". She has performed worldwide with various award winning shows from The Phantom of the Opera in Europe to Ephimera in the Sydney Opera House.
She holds a Bachelor of Music, a Master in Singing Performance and a PostGrad in Opera. These songs were written to suit Desiree's warm and at times dramatic, mezzo soprano voice.
Since winning a major European prize for her poem 'The Old Oak' at the age of 12, she has since gone on to writing many lyrics for songs and musical shows. See below for her artful lyrics for this song cycle.

Only One Glance
"When I was looking for a work for solo performance special study
for year 12 Dvorak's Gipsy Songs were originally suggested.
However when I listened to them I knew that I would not be able
to enjoy learning and performing them. My singing teacher Beverly
Peart showed me her copy of Songs of Love and Desire,
and I listened to the CD while sight singing and knew immediately
that it was what I wanted to perform.
The song cycle presented me with a challenge, and fitted my
range perfectly. While enjoying the works my technical ability
increased dramatically, and they have offered many opportunities
for great interpretation. The lyrics are beautiful and the music
is fantastic and unique. They work together to create the song
cycle that I have found to be a joy to perform.
also obtained one of your aural books, and it has been a
great help, especially for rhythm."
you for all of your support
