Songs - S. Barber

Composer(s):
  • Samuel Barber (1910-1981)

… voice students around the country will be lining up well into the next century to buy it … Alexander’s singing of them [Hermit Songs] is handsome and shapely … Opus What a fine cycle this is, one realises in Alexander’s graphically sung account … vividly expressive without ever disrupting the grace of Barber’s vocal lines. Gramophone
