AllMusic Review by

A budget-price reissue on the barebones LaserLight label, 1995's SANITY AND GRACE is, as is so often the case with LaserLight reissues, filled with great music indifferently presented. These 10 songs are uniformly excellent, though they make a rather oddball and unrepresentative compilation. ("Born to the Breed" and the June Tabor-like title track are particularly fine though idiosyncratic choices.)

The Joshua Rifkin setting of William Blake's "Jerusalem" is particularly nice. It's difficult to figure out for whom this disc is intended, but there's nothing embarrassing here.
