This unique album of American songs for soprano and piano includes 10 world premiere recordings, including the first recording of Winifred Hyson's 'Songs of Job's Daughter' and many of the other songs have not been extensively or recently recorded but some modern classics are included, such as Menotti?s Five Songs. The repertoire highlights female composers and female poets (Amy Beach, Winifred Hyson, Gertrude Stein, Ina Coolbrith, Marianne Moore) and the mix of obscure and well-known songs (lyrics included) make a valuable contribution to the catalogue.
