Notes and Editorial Reviews

Paul Creston (1906-1985) was one of America's most important and influential composers of the mid-20th century. He earned ample attention for his orchestral compositions, but his songs — many of which are unpublished — remain little known. This recording offers a wide introduction to Creston's vocal music, bringing to light pieces for solo voice that have languished in obscurity. Soprano Rebecca Sherburn is an active chamber musician, having been featured by the Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group and the New York New Music Group. Her scholarly work has been published by the NATS Journal of Singing and the ACDA Choral Journal. A graduate of the University of Southern California, Ms. Sherburn is on the faculty at Chapman University.
