From the Press
... The Master Singers, I assure you, are really singers … It is a joy to hear these young men … They sing with remarkable refinement and assurance and with perfect intonation … If we could only hear such pure and beautiful English oftener. Success may be measured by the applause, recalls and encores accorded them.—
Herman Devries, Chicago American.
... It is without question the finest ensemble of its kind in the history of Chicago … we fell under the spell of the song, so varied, so expressive, and so often filled with the most stirring kind of drama … they seemingly know how to balance the serious and gay … In all they showed expert interpretative art, a lively sense of value of contrast, a nice appreciation of the artistic worth of restraint … Beautiful music, beautifully sung.—
Glenn Dillard Gunn, Chicago Herald & Examiner.
... there is nothing but praise to mention in behalf of these singing gentlemen … they possess a highly individual and mellow quality of tone … they sing in quasi—russian style and their performance is full of vitality … This efficient male ensemble displayed a brand of showmanship that bespoke a long experience before the public.—
Eugene Stinson, Chicago Daily News.
