Notes & Reviews:

Four Quartets of Songs & Arias, the debut Navona release by composer Roger Bourland, takes us on a touching journey by way of works for voice (Juliana Gondek) and piano (William Lumpkin). The album features four song cycles, each a four song set depicting a range of emotion and feeling. 'Four Apart Songs' depict the agony of being apart from something or someone, both physically and emotionally. 'Four End Songs' express the notion of endings in a variety of contexts. 'Four Marian Songs]' tenderly describe two Marian apparitions-remarkable images of the Virgin, and 'Four Xmas Songs' provide humorous relief about secular Christmas as a contrast to the emotional nature of the rest of the works on the album.
