‘Passages and Partings’ album review on

“Verch’s own compositions, moreover, are hard to distinguish from their traditional models. It may be a cliche — well, it is a cliche — to remark that Verch gives the impression of being something of an old soul.

This, I might add, in spite of a voice that one might expect to be attached to someone with fewer years on her than Verch’s. In any event, nothing about her feels native to the current century.
