She is a member of Trio Cordium Voices (Voices from the Heart) which sings the music of Hildegard von Bingen.
“Here’s a recording that almost slid past our eyes until hearing the marvelous young singer in live performance. Enkin is note for note perfect in diction and pitch. Choice of material suits her well as does the often quirky – always inventive arrangements by Frank Falco. The recording is stacked with the finest Toronto musicians who all deliver a memorable session.” — The Jazz Report Magazine
