Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This album marks Shirley Verrett’s debut on RCA Victor Red Seal records. She has chosen a program of Spanish songs which ranges through the multicolored moods of Falla’s Seven Popular Spanish Songs to the tender lullaby, “Canción de Cuna” by Montsalvatge. In this varied and challenging program Miss Verrett shares honors with Charles Wadsworth, who plays the equally demanding piano accompaniments."

- Walter Starkie
from the original 1965 RCA liner notes.
