Notes & Reviews:

The versatile and enterprising Paul Freeman, Julia Bentley, Mary Jane Johnson and Louise Toppin here introduce four works for soprano voice and orchestra, pieces which are thoroughly modern yet continue the grand tradition of the concert aria. 'Witness' was commissioned by Philip Brunelle for the Plymouth Music Series of Minnesota's 1990-1991 season. They represent the composer's reverent treatment of heartfelt and timeless spiritual texts.
