Notes & Reviews:

The music of late-Romantic composer Margaret Ruthven Lang (1867-1972) - though quite well known in her time - fell into near-total neglect after she stopped composing in 1919. Following earlier surveys of her art songs and piano music, this offering features a program of fourteen of Ms. Lang's secular and sacred choral works, all beautifully crafted and very appealing. Musicians from the Crane School of Music, SUNY Potsdam, perform.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The Crane School of Music of the State University of New York at Potsdam has come together with all its flags flying to put this program together. The soloists - mostly voice teachers at the school - are very good, as are the instrumental accompaniments. Intonation gremlins are at work in some of the vocal ensembles, especially when the fellows are on duty. Still, a winning case is made for the choral legacy of Margaret Ruthven Lang.
