Here is one of several 5-star reviews:
“Sonnet Love Songs is a wonderful collection of music blended with classic poetry. It immerses the listener into an image-filled lyrical gallery wrapped in beautifully delivered music. The delightful poetry selections are fused with a mix of light classical, jazz and even popular musical arrangements that highlight the works of Shakespeare, Browning, Wordsworth and others in a new and vibrant way, enhancing the prose of these genius poets to new levels. This brilliant interfusion of old and new styles is thoroughly enjoyable, a must for students and aficionados of music, words, life and love!”
