The âVision Entrancingâ on the cover is my grandmother, Agnes Lynnâwell, that was her stage name. She was a vaudeville trouper at the beginning of the 20th century, and worked for Gus Edwards in his âSchool Daysâ revues, touring the country from Broadway (1908) to San Francisco (I have photos of her standing amidst the rubble in 1906). I never met her; she died before I was born. But I seem to have inherited her musical tastesâindeed I sing several numbers on this CD from her copies of the songs. She was a very successful comedienne and, to judge from the photo, quite the âColleen Bawn.â By the way, her married name was Agnes Simmonds Slade, and she took great glee in having her initials emblazoned on the side of her Pierce-Arrow! I learned to sing from her son, my father, Samuel David Slade, and to both of them I dedicate this album.

Bio: Richard Slade, tenor, is a versatile artist, equally at home on the concert and operatic stages. As a member of The Western Wind, Americaâs pre-eminent a cappella vocal ensemble, he tours extensively and is featured on their new Public Radio special and CD, âHoliday Light.â

He has sung Tamino in âThe Magic Fluteâ across New York state, from the Smith Opera House in Geneva to a tour with the Long Island Philharmonic. He has been a regularly featured singer at the Caramoor Festival, with appearances in âLa gazza ladra,â âLucrezia Borgia,â and âIl pirata.â He participated in the Samuel Barber festival at the Kaye Playhouse and was featured on the McGraw-Hill Young Artists Showcase on WQXR. He has performed in rare revivals of important works such as Donizettiâs âGianni di Parigiâ and Martin y Solerâs âUna cosa raraâ at the Vineyard Opera, and in Opera Manhattanâs productions of Fauréâs âPénélope,â Hahnâs âLe Marchand de Venise,â and Poulencâs âDialogues of the Carmelites.â In the 150th anniversary performance of âThe Bohemian Girlâ at the Kaye Playhouse, he sang the role of Thaddeus. He made his Town Hall debut in Paisielloâs âLa molinara,â and his Bronx Opera debut as Eisenstein in âFledermaus.â

In the world of operetta he has performed in âIolanthe,â âPrincess Ida,â and âUtopia Limitedâ with New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players, and a duet cabaret show, âOh Love, True Love! or The Lass That Lovâd a Tenor,â with his wife, soprano Cynthia Reynolds.

His concert appearances include the title role in Handelâs âJudas Maccabeus,â and the tenor solos in Beethovenâs âMissa Solemnisâ and Dvorakâs âStabat Mater,â as well as Handelâs âMessiahâ and many of Bachâs cantatas. For the 2003-04 season he was artist-in-residence with the Long Island Choral Society, singing as soloist on all of their concerts.

Mr. Slade is very much at home on the recital platformânot only does he sing a wide range of classical art songs, but he specializes in the parlor repertory of the Victorian era. In June of 2000 he saved the show at the Caramoor festival by learning and performing Schumannâs âSpanisches Liebesliederâ on three hoursâ notice, substituting for an indisposed colleague.

He maintains a private voice studio, teaches at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY, and specializes in importing the almost forgotten arts of florid singing. In addition to his singing, Mr. Slade is a choral conductor, directing church and synagogue choirs, and was recently named Music Director of the Sound Shore Chorale in New Rochelle, NY.
