Editorial Reviews

This release of this newly re-mastered 1940 recital by the great Dorothy Maynor is cause for celebration. Historian Rosalyn M. Story writes, "In the history of American singers, Dorothy Maynor stands out as an artist endowed with the power to exalt, to transport the hearer above the realm of the ordinary and beyond the limits of normal expectation." A discovery of Serge Koussevitzky, who called her, "a musical revelation," Maynor quickly established herself as one of the great talents of the era. This recital program contains riveting interpretations of songs and arias from the German and French and American repertoire. Maynor's last group, and her encores focus on Negro spirituals. Writing in the Washington Post, Paul Hume called Maynor's voice, "a star-spangled glory; its effortless beauty haunted audiences that came to love the singer as much as the song." It was that kind of communication that endeared Maynor to audiences, and made her one of her country's greatest singers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Art July 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dorothy Maynor was the first superb musician I heard in person, in fact, I was within a dozen feet of her. I was fifteen year old freshman(sic) at Bennett College. She remains, for me, the hallmark of the trained soprano voice. This CD recreates and expands the glorious beauty of her singing and her soul.

I do hope that the newer generations of people discover this ignored-even lost art and artist, as well as others of the era and discipline. Miss Maynor is one of our most precious treasures.
