"Among this cohort, two young mezzos movingly embodied some of the Horne legacy. Jamie Barton controlled a jaw-dropping, wine-dark contralto sound with sovereign suavity in Mahler's "Urlicht" and in a finely blended duet from Handel's Giulio Cesare opposite an eloquent David Daniels."
–David J. Baker, Opera News
"Barton sounded fantastic–rich and flowing–both in a soulful “Urlicht” (the wrenching Knaben Wunderhorn song Mahler deploys in the Second Symphony) and in joining David Daniels for a terrific “Son nata a lagrimar” from Giulio Cesare. Barton’s tone in the Mahler made the audience hold its breath."
