Cornelius Johnson, Operatic Tenor



"Cornelius Johnson
delivered abolitionist William Still’s music with sermon-like fervor."

"... expressive and soaring."

"... moments of unexpected tenderness and some wicked trills to his portrayal."

"A long and majestic church sequence featured a heaven-storming sermon from Rev. Jerome Mitchell, sublimely paced and passionately sung by tenor Cornelius Johnson."
