Notes & Reviews:

"Thomson's songs, like the many character pices for piano that he wrote throughout his life, show his range as a composer better than his most famous works, the two operas based on Gertrude Stein's librettos...In this thoughtfully assembled collection of songs, Thomson's expertise is aptly matched by the intelligence of the singers and accompanist...With very nice recorded sound, this disc can be enthusiastically recommended." -Burke, Fanfare
