Notes & Reviews:

"The songs recorded here span a 30-year period of Hovhaness's career. The most recent were written in 1971 for the bass on this recording, Ara Berberian; while the oldest ones - settings of Shakespeare's sonnets 'When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes' and 'When to the sessions of sweet silent thought' - date from 1942." - Boyer, ARG
