Notes & Reviews:

This sequel to the much-lauded Canto Ergo Sum features lovely songs performed by a brilliant boy soprano. The beautiful harmonies nurture peace of mind and impart consolation, warmth, and hope. This is a recording that seeks common ground between classical music and folk tunes. The breadth of the music Benjamin Isachsen has selected showcases his musicality, the quality of his voice, and his ability to express himself.
