Notes & Reviews:

Carver Blanchard is the former lutenist for the Smithsonian Institution and now teaches guitar and lute at Wesleyan University. He has divided this recording into three sections. The first, Audubon, is a tone poem for solo lute by Blanchard based on a poem by Robert Penn Warren. The second section, Heartsongs, is a recreation of a late 19th-early 20th century home musicale and the third is a group of hymns from the 1940 Episcopal hymnal arranged by Blanchard for solo lute.
