A thoughtful and beautiful program of songs by American composers.

The songs heard on this recording are the outgrowth of several recital projects by Valerie Errante and Jeffry Peterson. Both artists are professors of music at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and have collaborated with all of the composers whose works are represented. Richard Faith (b.1926) was professor of piano at the University of Arizona in Tucson until his retirement in 1988. John Downey, who died in 2004 was on the faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Henry Mollicone is a graduate of the New England Conservatory and is currently teaching at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. Yehuda Yannay is Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and is the creator of more than 100 works for virtually all musical media. Stephen Paulus is one of America's most prolific and accomplished composers, with more than 200 works to his credit.

Review:
"Errante employs her light soprano to great effect. She can float a note transcendently and she can attack another with great force. ...The music is well worth hearing..." (American Record Guide)

"There is so much to admire about this collection....Most modern art song programs present a plethora of musical and vocal challenges, but few exceed the collective demands of these twenty-six songs, especially in terms of stylistic and emotional range." (Journal of Singing)
