Notes & Reviews:

"...Sumi Jo's lovely rendition of the nun's chorus from Johann Strauss, Jr's 'Casanova' is just one of the many unusual prayers that make this collection a delight... Jo's luminous performance of a real rarity, Ravel's 'Kaddish', together with her affecting account of 'Take Care of This House' from Leonard Bernstein's '1600 Pennsylvania Avenue', where her partner is the gifted Susan Graham, would be reason enough to buy this imaginative anthology..." -Milazzo, ARG
