Notes & Reviews:

"In these songs and cantatas from the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Christopher Berg aspires to be a contemporary avatar of Chausson, Ravel, Poulenc, and other composers in the early 20th Century French tradition. 'I make no apologies', he says in his notes. 'Imitation, after all, is the sincerest form of flattery.' Berg manages to merge his musical personality with all these composers, creating something between homage and pastiche." - Sullivan, ARG
