Notes & Reviews:

The first of two discs funded by an NEA grant presents fourteen settings of sonnets: a choral "sonnet of sonnets." This CD features six world premiere choral settings of Michelangelo, Rossetti, and Browning by Eric Banks, Lorri Kristin Froggét, and John Muehleisen. In addition, The Esoterics sings two sonnets of Petrarch by Lars John Werle, and five sonnets of Shakespeare by Paul Crabtree, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, and Dominick Argento. To complete this disc, the ensemble performs Three nocturnes by Carlos Chávez, and is joined by guest harpists Alexis Odell and Melissa Walsh to present Robert Moran's Notturno in Weiss.
