Sinding wrote some 250 songs of variable quality which are second in importance only to Grieg in Norwegian song. Those looking for the individual profile of a Grieg will do so in vain, though the songs show a cultured sensibility and good craftsmanship. Per Vollestad sings with evident feeling and intelligence, and contributes informative and helpful notes. Robert Layton
