Published December 11, 2003.Jane SiberryShushan the Palace (Hymns of Earth)(Sheeba)Jane Siberry’s talent is her lyrics: She mines the human heart and uses diamonds, fool’s gold and coal to make jewels of songs about happiness’s height, loss’s abyss and the conditions in between. Here she has only arranged hymns by Handel, Bach, Rossetti and other usual suspects. A heav’nly orchestra accompanies her. She does both solo and chorus; lovely voices but it is slightly creepy to hear a flock of Siberrys. Winter hearth audio wallpaper. —Jane Kansas
