Product Description


"Offering subtle melodic and textural inflections, the singers get to the heart of the music." Sun Sentinel

"Marvelous technical command of the music, with flawless intonation, perfect elocution, and absolutely glorious phrasing... [T]his represents a treasure of importance to the field, as indeed many do on VAI." In Tune

"Stewart, like fine wine, improves with age... I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it to anyone who treasures these two fine artists." American Record Guide

"These are sensitive, nuanced, involved, and committed interpretations that communicate the songs' every inherent mood and emotion... Strongly recommended" Fanfare

"The intelligence of the performances makes the disc essential." Washington Post

"This and the other recordings in the series deserve a place in the collection of anyone who cares about singing at its noblest and most communicative... No one has equaled the immediacy and sense of the operatic that Mr. Stewart brings to songs... Hearing them sung side-by-side virtually defines the imposing character of his art." Dallas Morning News
