Notes & Reviews:

With works described as "an inspired creation" (Music & Vision), "original and quite brilliant" (Fanfare), and "immensely poetic" (Tempo), Jonathan Little has established himself as a luminary contemporary composer. On POLYHYMNIA Little is able to transform traditional influences into rich, intense, and finely structured music that lives up to his reputation. POLYHYMNIA features Polyhymnia and Terpsichore, two orchestral pieces from Little's Nine Muses series, along with the powerful Fanfare, the atmospheric string quintet Sacred Prelude, and the 60-voice Kyrie.
