Notes & Reviews:

This album focuses on the earliest American singers of whom we have records. It affords us views of performing practice in the first years of the 20th century and vignettes of the musical values of the 19th century when these singers were students. The views are limited, the vignettes are faint; we can learn much, though in what we learn we must assess carefully what is knowledge and what is belief.
