Elizabeth Fraser

No voice invokes an air of autumn quite like Elizabeth Fraser's. Since this is my favorite time of the year, I'm going to highlight artists that embody the spirit of the season.

Cocteau Twins dedicated an entire album to the beauty of the female name early in their career (Treasure). The female name is featured here tonight in three haunting selections of Ms. Fraser's later efforts.

Cocteau Twins - Alice
Yann Tiersen - Mary
Yann Tiersen - Kala
(By the way, I was delighted to see that Alice is used in the trailer for Peter Jackson's upcoming film, The Lovely Bones. )
