I am listening to the songs at the PentaTone site. Unfortuately, the site does not indicate who sings which songs. And one has to press each song one by one, I don't see any way to hit "play all."

"Though Philadelphia operagoers are most used to seeing baritone Nathan Gunn on stage, his new role with Opera Company of Philadelphia will be all but invisible: On Wednesday, Gunn was appointed director of the opera company's American Repertoire Council, a role in which he'll give special attention to the opera company's current 10-year commitment to producing an American opera annually.

"In his own career, his future interests include Heggie's Dead Man Walking, Andre Previn's A Streetcar Named Desire as well as such musical theater works as Sweeney Todd and Carousel. 'But at the moment,' he said, 'it seems that my destiny is more to create new roles and to help get new works produced.'"
