Notes & Reviews:

"...this recording belongs in the collection of everyone with either an interest in the history of American song or simply collectors of great song recitals...Beardslee sings it all as if it were major Schubert and characterizes the musical language of each of her very different composers completely. The analog sound comes up fine in this remastering...I cannot recommend this recital too highly." -Story, Fanfare

Notes & Reviews:

REVIEWS:

New York Times (Publisher) (6/11/00, p.30) - "...The music is stunning in its variety and excellence....[Chanler] was a master of musical economy....Citkowitz's Five Songs From "Chamber Music" (1930), settings of texts by James Joyce, are a revelation...His songs are few but extraordinary..."
