Review:
"The piano sonata is a stunning, spacious work. Walker is at his finest in the songs. Each one is a gem. ...James Martin's warm baritone, concise diction, and wide variety of colors are a perfect match for these songs." (American Record Guide)

"From this CD one would conclude that [George Walker] is versatile, technically adept, and extremely skillful at changing styles..." (Fanfare)
