Notes & Reviews:
Regarded for nearly three decades as one of the world's finest countertenors, Drew Minter has appeared in leading roles with the opera companies of Brussels, Toulouse, Boston, Washington, Santa Fe, Wolf Trap, Glimmerglass, and Nice, among others. On this recording, in a tour de force of vocal and instrumental virtuosity, Minter accompanies himself on medieval harps, singing as both countertenor and baritone. The great tradition of the Meistersinger and minnesinger is captured by Minter with an elegance and wit that brings this ancient music to vivid life.
