Mendelssohn: Elijah
"There was a deluxe roster of soloists. Karol Bennett brought a voice both ample and delicate to music composed with Jenny Lind in mind; her "Hear ye, Israel!" was clarion-like enough for anybody's purposes."
Richard Buell - The Boston Globe

Mendelssohn: "Hear Ye, Israel" (excerpt) from Elijah
  with the Boston Masterworks Chorale

Harbison: Simple Daylight
"The cycle continues Harbison's development of the utterly natural style for setting American poetry...Bennett and McDonald live that style in all their performances. These songs weren't written for them...but they are the performers the piece is likely to become identified with, and the sooner the better."
Lloyd Schwartz, The Boston Phoenix

Earl Kim: Three Poems in French
"Soprano Karol Bennett was in almost sinfully beautiful voice"
