Notes & Reviews:

International renowned mezzo-soprano Susanne Mentzer sings unrecorded art songs by the father of American opera, Carlisle Floyd.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
All the songs are sung very well by the excellent American mezzo Susanne Mentzer. Miss Mentzer's voice has no problem with any of the music, even some quite high notes here and there. Her enunciation of the text is so clear. She is accompanied expertly by Grant Loehnig and Christopher James Ray. This makes a fine addition to a collection of American song recordings.
