Connoisseurs of vocal music will appreciate this fourth recording of Lori Laitman's songs.

Lori Laitman, one of America's most prolific and widely performed composers of art song comments: "The songs on this CD are for solo voice and piano, and all have been composed since 2000, making them 21st century art song. The poems were written between 1612 and 2008...My goal is to create dramatic music to express and magnify the meaning of the poem...Each song becomes my musical interpretation of the poem."

Review:
"...Laitman clearly [has] the elusive ability to pick texts that emotionally resonate with her. ...Recommended, especially to young singers, who will find music here that connects strongly with audiences." (All Music Guide)

"[Lori Laitman's] songs represent outpourings of great beauty. ...Laitman tackles each poem's subject matter with unfailing sympathy...yet she can react with tremendous humor, too." (Fanfare)

"This is music of depth and richness that connects with the soul." (American Record Guide)
