"This collection reflects the centrality of art song in Elliot Weisgarber's oeuvre, and testifies to the feeling and intelligence he brings to bear in making a 'new thing' of each text he selects. Here the muscular dignity of Jeffers' verses, and the liquid sonority of Sterling's, find commensurate musical expression. Here Fletcher's delicate imagist depictions gain spare musical texture and resolve. The setting of Rilke's 'Herbestag' astonishes with its declamatory opening, and Hardy's new-love magic, as he returns from Lyonnesse, achieves a new poignancy. But listeners will find their own revelations among these deeply-felt and beautifully crafted settings."
