Songs of integrity, substance and passion by Tom Cipullo, David Eddleman, Daron Hagen, Richard Hundley, Martin Hennessy and Lee Hoiby.

Drifts and Shadows: American Song for the New Millennium beckons us to an exhilarating journey--via these stimulating songs of integrity, substance and passion. Baritone Elem Eley has worked with each of the six composers. Their compositional styles range from aggressive, hyper-kinetic, and jazzy to compellingly melodious and richly harmonized. Eley enjoys an amazingly varied career, from opera, oratorio and recital to premieres of contemporary vocal works. A native of Georgia, he hold degrees in voice from Baylor University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and completed doctoral coursework at Indiana University. He is Professor of Voice at Westminster Choir College of Rider University.

Review:
"These men mean business when it comes to song-writing, and it's comforting to know that the American art song is in good hands...these are weighty songs worthy of your time and attention, solid and unmarred by cynicism. Buy this record." (American Record Guide)

"...this is a miraculous compilation of gems." (Fanfare)

"No matter what technical and expressive hurdles these songs present, Eley surmounts them with conviction and assurance, impressing us as a singer, musician and communicator." (Journal of Singing)
