Notes & Reviews:

Even though Martinu is known for a number of significant choral works, including his oratorio The Epic of Gilgamesh (Naxos 8555138), much of his vocal music is still being discovered today. This collection features many excellent examples of Martinus songs, including six world premiere recordings!
