Robert White (tenor), Samuel Sanders (piano)
Tenor Robert White sings 28 romantic songs spanning the century by both native American and immigrant composers, from Amy Beach in 1899 to Marc Marder's Walt Whitman setting of 1996. There are many favourites (or 'favorites') here from the musical stage, including Friml's Rose Marie and Victor Herbert's Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life. Malotte's famous setting of The Lord's Prayer is also included. The title of the CD is taken from Samuel Barber's beautiful setting of James Agee (the poet of Knoxville, Summer of 1924).
The accompanying booklet is packed with anecdotes from Robert White's personal acquaintance with the majority of the composers represented. Several of the songs were actually written specially for him to sing.

Come Away, Death
Death is almost as natural an ingredient in our lives as love, but whereas love is something bright and beautiful, life-giving, death is dark and irreversible. A beautifully crafted CD, centred around Shakespeare’s poem Come, Away, Death, taken from Twelfth Night. The sublime performance of Marianne Beate Kielland, takes the listener on a journey through this dark subject but brings them through it, enlightened and glad to be alive!
“Kielland sings with plaintive, strongly appealing tone throughout the disc. She is equally at home in Mussorgsky and Ratkje. Her voice perfectly adopts Death's terrifying charm...As the dedicatee of HVIL, she has the measure of its spectral whisperings...Osadchuk is at all times a sympathetic partner and an expressive equal in the Ratkje.” Classic FM Magazine, February 2011 ****
