Notes & Reviews:

Since its inception the Mirror Visions Ensemble has explored song repertoire from a number of angles. The initial interest was the back-to-back performance of multiple settings of a single text, leading to programs built around favorite portraits. This has been followed by musical travelogues and concerts at museums that feature music with a connection to the exhibit or museum. During the last decade, the ensemble has commissioned 69 new works, two of which are presented on this recording. Berg's 'Lincoln Letters' is set to texts more personal than political, while Hagen's 'Songs from Dear Youth' are set to letters from the Civil War.
