The WholeNote
"This CD was recorded in 1998 by Canada's most famous musical couple, during a recital performed at Merkin Hall, New York City...The tenderness between singer and pianist shines through beautifully...The recital ends with passionate Italian repertoire, songs by Tosti and Renato's Eri tu from Verdi's "Ballo in Maschera". For those of us who miss this man's exquisite voice, this CD provides a most welcome legacy. Proceeds from the recording will go to the Christina and Louis Quilico Fund at the Ontario Arts Council to help young singer and pianists."
