Notes & Reviews:

Baritone Peter Lightfoot, described as "vocally brilliant" by Opera News, presents a CD of art songs by American composers. These pieces represent different periods and aspects of the American experience. Some songs may be familiar, for example, Barbara Allen, Colorado Trail, and It's Me, O Lord, and some may be unknown to many listeners. The composers of these selections, from sea chanties to spirituals, have expressed the music in a unique classical manner while retaining their original "Americana" flavor.
