Notes & Reviews:

”Billy Collins is a living American poet who has amassed a number of notable honors, including Poet Laureate for two terms, from 2001 to 2003. This new recording project is an honor to a different sort, a documentation of a suite of five works commissioned by Fredda Hyman and Dr. Peter Austin of Chicago’s Music in the Loft seriesThis recording is a model of clarity and finely honed balances, and the performers are of a uniformly high level.”-Fanfare
