CD Reviews

A "Boxy" Performance
Daniel J. Cragg | Springfield, Virginia | 05/05/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Taking Stephen Foster's music out of the parlor and into the concert hall is not a new idea but here it just does not work. Jeffrey Dooley, a noted countertenor whose repertoire includes the works of Handel and Purcell, composers whose music responds to countertenors with excellent effect, renders a performance here that sounds like it was recorded inside a box, resulting in a high-pitched echo that hurt my ears and made it difficult to follow the lyrics of the songs. I gave this recording two stars because the instrumentals are quite good."
