Notes & Reviews:

"American audiences have known about Ned Rorem's songs for ages, it seems; on the evidence of this disc, it's about time the rest of the musical world caught up with them... [Rorem] has a refreshing gift for creating memorable, direct, singable vocal lines that can recall Sondheim or Bernstein, except that Rorem is subtler than Sondheim and, compared to Bernstein, blissfully sugar-free..." ***** -BBC Music
