of King James I before and after the publication of his great English
Bible in 1611. Burton is much in demand as a soloist in oratorio and
opera across the U.S. He has been praised for his "nobility and rich
tone," (The New York Times) and his "enormous, thrilling voice seemingly
capable ... [of] raising the dead;" (Wall Street Journal).
