Notes & Reviews:

"...The stereotype [of the countertenor] is challenged by the Japanese-American Brian Asawa, whose voice is notably even, coloured by well-controlled vibrato, and not lacking in warmth...Both cycles ['More Than a Day' & 'From an Unkown Past'] also reveal Rorem's talent for orchestration--as does 'Water Music'...Fine playing by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, under the pianist-conductor Jeffrey Kahane..." ***** - Burton, BBC
