HBD!Project - May your June be Proud

This recording project needed a lot of practice for some very difficult rep, but was a lot of fun to record and play. HBD!Project's May/June compilation of composers features a huge cast of singers, none of whom I rehearsed with before recording the tracks, although let's just say Natalya and I entered into negotiations regarding the tempo for the Wagner Ride of the Valkyries. 

Production credits go to Natalya Gennadi and Catherin Carew for putting together the project, as well as Bruno Roy for video and sound editing. 

Here's a complete track listing with a rundown of the cast for each:
