'This is a very charming record' (Gramophone)

'A delightful, imaginatively wide-ranging anthology. A most enjoyable entertainment as well as a true voyage of discovery' (Hi-Fi News)

'I felt as if I was discovering these songs for the first time' (Soundscapes, Australia)
Cleveland-born Eric Ewazen is on the Juilliard faculty. He is also composer-in-residence with the St Luke’s Chamber Ensemble. I have sung many of his songs over the years. Eric’s songs range from the gentleness of Edna St Vincent Millay’s God’s World to the ferocity found here in William Blake’s The Tiger. When Eric brought this song to me I was immediately struck by its vitality and freshness. I am delighted to be the first to record it.
