“The program has real substance in terms of the literary merit of its song lyrics. Of even greater significance are Respighi’s settings of three poems by Ada Negri. These songs are evocative of the elements, the fading daylight, and their profound effect on human emotions, from quiet contemplation to alarm. A crowning touch to a great album.” – Atlanta Audio Club
“Haigh’s voice had a sweet tone layered with just enough vibrato for the style. Her voice floated gently in the surrounding space, while the melodic flourishes were spun with clarity and agility.” – South Florida Classical Review
