Notes & Reviews:

Gloria Coates is of a modernist generation for whom music is a vehicle for dark, disturbing emotions, for whom the range of musical sounds must be greatly expanded to blast through audience complacency and address the special horrors of our time. These thoughts are inspired particularly by these vocal works of Coates's, which are so much darker than her usual instrumental music. In their emphasis on text and emotion, these pieces push aside Coates's usual love of canons and symmetries.
