Shirley Verrett was one of America’s finest opera stars and recital singers who came to prominence in the 1950s and 1960s. She sang at the Metropolitan Opera for over 20 years and appeared often at La Scala, Covent Garden, the Bolshoi, the Paris Opera and the San Francisco Opera. Verrett’s deep musicianship and intelligence allowed her to explore a large repertory with commanding insight, and almost all the material on these discs, recorded relatively early on in Verrett’s long career, testifies to her artistry outside the opera house.

CD 1: Verrett’s album of traditional songs, Singin’ in the Storm
CD 2: Verrett’s 1965 Carnegie Hall recital, featuring music by Tchaikovsky, Schubert, Rachmaninov, and Copland
