McLEAN, Va. — Morris D. Robinson ('91) sings Beethoven, Verdi and Mozart for a living, but for his debut album, the renowned operatic bass chose music closer to his heart. On Going Home, he returns to his musical roots with traditional spirituals and gospel hymns.  "It celebrates the African-American spirit through songs," says Robinson, 38, the son and grandson of Baptist ministers. "Traditionally, opera singers doing spirituals are in an acoustical room with a piano singing Amazing Grace like they're singing Verdi." Robinson, whose album is being released on Decca/Universal Music Classics, is the first black male opera singer signed to a major classical label in 50 years. ...
