about this recording:
When a celebrated American opera singer, whose father was a Baptist preacher, dedicates herself with fervor to spirituals and gospels, and is accompanied by such a high-spirited guitarist as Jan Zacek to boot, one listens with pleasure to this special type of American "art song," and not without feeling a certain twitch in the legs.
The proceeds from this CD again go entirely to the human rights organization amnesty international.
