"Myers’ sound is evenly produced and gorgeously colored throughout its range. He brought dramatic conviction to each reading, from the creeping uncertainty of the Elegy (after William Blake) to the bright and hopeful mythology of the Hymn (text by Ben Jonson). Myers’ overall performance achieved a certain dreamlike quality that suited the nighttime setting evoked by the work’s title, without growing hazy enough to eclipse its meaning or momentum."
