Notes & Reviews:

Sad to say, Dominick Argento, along with Gian-Carlo Menotti, is among the last of the great Italian-American composers. Argento has become identified with his vocal pieces, although he has produced powerful works for orchestra, such as 'A Ring of Time' and 'The Mask of Night.' This collection of works, sung by Kansas City-born tenor Howard Haskin, displays Argento's keen literary sense and strong melodic gifts.
