Review By Grego Applegate Edwards,Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review,August 2013

Two other Barber jewels are present on this disc: the lightly invigorating Serenade, Op 1 and the sublimely beautiful setting of Matthew Arnold’s poem Dover Beach. The vocal part…is stunningly realized by baritone Randall Scarlata…
