Great CD - excellent song choice for a singer with a wonderfully rich voice!
This is a great collection of songs, sung beautifully. I am very picky about buying a whole CD (as opposed to buying individual song online) since so many CDs have one or two songs that I like and the rest seems to be just rubbish. This is totally not true for "Tradition" which has many great tracks, making the purchase worth it - I highly recommend buying it!
