REVIEWS

"Jacques, most importantly, helps carry the show. Baritone Stephen Lancaster...conveys the character's mix of profundity and buffoonery while singing with authority and superb diction."
- South Bend Tribune

 

"...baritone Stephen Lancaster projected the pathos of the Libera me with great strength."
 - New York Concert Review

 

"Lancaster's voice was wonderful. His line...burst in during a quiet moment in the fourth movement, and he held his own against the orchestra's full complement of strings and wind instruments."
 - South Bend Tribune

 

"Lancaster...shows good interpretive skill with these songs, coloring his voice to fit the text...and employing a wide range of expression and dynamics. He's a fine storyteller-singer who sounds like he is having fun with the animal songs."
 - American Record Guide

 

"Lancaster is varied in tone and alive to feeling….he is engaged in his performances, and the recital ends in excellent fashion, with Lancaster almost conversational in his directness of communication."
 - Fanfare Magazine
