Reviewing recently released recordings, Howard Taubman, music critic for The New York Times, praised The Italian Madrigal by the Vassar Madrigal Singers, directed by Professor of Music Harold Geer.  “The fourteen young singers,” wrote Taubman, “ sing this music with disarming clarity and sweetness….  One has the feeling that the spirit is close to the one that prevailed in the days when these pieces were new.”
