Notes & Reviews:

"The titles of these chamber works written since 1999 by Swedish-born American composer Tina Davidson have a New Age tinge, but the music is much better than that. It is My Heart singing, an homage to Brahms, has a romantic flow and good cheer reminiscent of the master's more genial string pieces. The quartet is constantly in motion, continually renewing and redefining itself until it comes to rest on a soft major chord. Delight of Angels sounds like a continuation of the same piece in the opening fast section, which is described in the notes as "a song about that ceaseless moment of being"; it then melts into "quiet rapture in the presence of the divine". Paper, Glass, String, and Wood for triple string quartet is also melodic and contemplative, but more melancholy. It has a bit more tension and contrast than the other pieces. The Cassatt Quartet plays with precision and loving conviction, and the recording is suitably warm." -ARG
