Review By Steven Ritter,Audiophile Audition,October 2013

There has been a spate of fine Winter Words recently…

But if forced to choose, I think I would go with this new recording by Nicholas Phan, a rising young American tenor whose star is commensurate with the evanescent and thoroughly unmannered singing on this wonderful disc. …Phan’s marvelously ebullient and soaring rendition places it first on my list. …Phan finds no such problems with it and sings it as easily as one might approach Copland’s Old American Songs—simply and with no affection of interpretation.
