the following experts are taken from Capitol promo material -

from Gramophone Record Review, March 1959 - This is a delightful collection admirably performed by all concerned...a fine, warm, expressive mezzo with a bite in her voice which is most effective...sings always with feeling and conviction. Almeida as always plays with technical brilliance...he turns to lute...another side of this attractive essay in tonal lines and blending. The whole collection is very well recorded and warmly recommended. - Burnet James, Assistant editor

from Hi-Fi Music at Home - This sparkling recital by Salli Terri and Laurindo Almeida makes a fine sequel to their equally enchanting set of "Duets with the Spanish Guitar" Miss Terri's singing is graceful and refined, and Mr. Almeida's guitar solos and accompaniments are models of sensitive, discerning musicianship. The two artists, and flutist Martin Ruderman, display an unerring sense of ensemble and style in a distinctive program which spans many nations, centuries, and musical forms, and includes traditional songs as well as compositions by Dowland, Bach, Scarlatti, Faure, Falla and others. Capitol's smooth, intimate sound complements a recording which is, in every sense, a superlative one. A A A, a triple A rating. - Robert Sherman March 1959

from Downbeat, March 5 1959 - ...a lovely album featuring the superb guitar of Almeida and the airy voice of Salli Terri...the program is drawn from a wide range of material, dating back to the 16th Century...the program is handsomely paced and exquisitely performed.

from the Des Moines Sunday Register, July 5 1959 - ...completely in rapport, the program of baroque love songs is notable for taste and classic execution. Modesty becomes any art; it graces Miss Terri. - Ogden Dwight
