“If American song needs an evangelist, no one is better equipped to do the job right than Thomas Hampson….with a voice like oiled oak, capable of infinite tonal shadings, and a gift for storytelling possessed by few of his colleagues, Hampson made each song as dramatically potent as any character in his operatic arsenal.”     Chicago Tribune
