Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Other than 'On This Island' and A Charm of Lullabies, the songs here are not well known. The Cabaret Songs have been recorded several times. Ziegler's mezzo is quite striking for its gentle beauty. Her performance of the 'Charm' is outstanding.

Highly regarded for her interpretation of 20th-century American and British song, soprano Linda Mabbs has appeared with many of the world's leading orchestras. She is joined by colleagues Delores Ziegler and Rita Sloan in this welcome recording of Britten's Songs for Ladies.
