Notes & Reviews:

  • This reissue of Maurice Emmanuel's songs represents their only recordings and sole appearance on CD
  • Includes the four episode masterpiece 'In memoriam', a moving remembrance of his mother which he wrote following her passing
  • Extensive booklet includes an essay on Emmanuel and the sung texts in both French and English

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
This carefully prepared and wellresearched program (including detailed notes) is a must for anyone who enjoys exploring practically unknown repertoire. The music is wonderfully varied. 'Villanelle du Temps PassT' is playful and sweetly nostalgic. The lullaby is a dramatic scene filled with all the conflicting emotions of motherhood: fear, joy, and peace. Exquisitely played, it deserves a place in the canon; and I hope this performance will inspire many others.
