Notes & Reviews:
As much as Charles Ives is known for his output of orchestral, chamber and piano music, his songs for voice are a true testimony to his creativity and how it evolved throughout his prolific career as a composer. Ives completed almost 200 songs for voice between the years of 1888 and 1942. He used the words of his contemporaries such as Christina Rosetti and Rudyard Kipling, ancient texts like the Old Testament, and more commonly set texts from poets like Shakespeare and Goethe. This set includes all of the songs that Ives completed recorded by various voice types accompanied by piano, organ or small chamber ensemble.
