Notes & Reviews:

The two major cycles (Six Songs on the Poetry of Langston Hughes and With A Song in My Heart) on this collection whose theme centers on the African American experience are a collaborative project between the composer, Dominic Dousa, and the singer, Gerald Blanchard who met at Central Michigan University. Mr. Blanchard was the poet for the second cycle. Blandchard's voice has been described by critics as "rich and expressive..." and he has an active career in opera, as a recitalist and as a soloist with orchestras.
