“These are sensitive, nuanced, involved, and committed interpretations that communicate the songs' every inherent mood and emotion... Strongly recommended”
“Stewart, like fine wine, improves with age... I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it to anyone who treasures these two fine artists”
“Marvellous technical command of the music, with flawless intonation, perfect elocution, and absolutely glorious phrasing...this represents a treasure of importance to the field, as indeed many do on VAI”
Dallas Morning News
“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 equalled the immediacy and sense of the operatic that Mr. Stewart brings to songs”
