Notes & Reviews:

The final volume in this revelatory song series charts a twenty-year period during Bohuslav Martinu's life. The early The Three Virgins, H.73 is suffused in an impressionist atmosphere enhanced by Martinu's advanced harmonic language whilst the New Slovak Songs, H.126 was the result of a highly successful rapprochement between Czech and Slovak art, reflected in music of beauty and inventiveness. Nursey Rhymes, H.283bis, though composed in perilous times, is full of wit and joy. American Record Guide wrote of volume 3 (8.573387): 'Wallingerova has a golden tone and crisp diction, and Koukl plays with warmth and clarity.'
