Notes & Reviews:

"As far as I am concerned, Bridge Records deserves a fanfare and a 21-gun salute for tracking down Jan DeGaetani's concert tapes and making them generally available...These singers understand the Jewish idiom (never mind that they sing in German) and convey beautifully the few fleeting joys and the many sorrows expressed...Recommended, especially for the Shostakovich." -American Record Guide
