"Five Stars ... a top notch recital of wonderful American songs, captured in pristine sound. I am not sure I have heard a finer American song album (in 20 years) ... Pentatone captures the sound in as fine a fashion as we have come to expect ..."
- Audiophile Audition

"... nicely programmed, very well performed and very decently recorded production indeed ... you will find some highly entertaining music which can tickle the imagination and widen the horizons ... a highly commendable release ... an entertaining and stimulating recital."
- MusicWeb International

"... especially fine and worthy of attention is the vocal artistry of American soprano Lisa Delan. Not only does she have an extremely attractive voice, displaying remarkable agility and musical precision, but she imbues her renditions with tremendous personality, which is utilized generously ..."
- Fanfare

And If the Song be Worth a Smile, a collection of songs by American composers, is the debut solo recording from soprano Lisa Delan. She is accompanied on these songs by pianist Kristin Pankonin and joined by guest artists Matt Haimovitz on cello and mezzo-soprano Susanne Mentzer.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
