Composer Virgil Thompson hailed the distinguished American baritone William Warfield (1920-2002) as “one of the most satisfying vocal artists of our time.” In 1963, while in Chicago to participate in a performance of ‘El Pessebre,’ an oratorio by Pablo Casals, Mr. Warfield was Studs Terkel’s guest on WFMT.
