Notes & Reviews:

A unique opportunity to experience a gifted young person with a big heart for serious music! When the time came for Benjamin to find a title for this CD, he suddenly lit on the idea of putting a slightly new twist on Descartes' famous maxim on doubting, thinking, and being - he sings, therefore he is. The CD presents a broad repertoire, with reference to varied musical periods, languages, and traditions.
