Notes and Editorial Reviews

This wonderfully eclectic collection lives up to its title by presenting music from the pen, or quill, of Anne Boleyn right up to composers active at the eve of the millennium. Boleyn's poignant 'O deathe, rock me asleepe' opens the program, and soprano Neva Pilgrim captures all of the song's heartbreak. The time line jumps ahead to the Italian Baroque with ethereal songs by relatively well-known composers like Barbara Strozzi and Francesca Caccini. Some of the more remarkable treasures are from later periods, with a particularly interesting contribution by Maria Theresia von Paradis. Her song 'Das Gärtner liedchen aus dem Siegwart' is folk-like, its gentle lyricism married to a plaintive text that anticipates Schubert's work. Music of the Read more 20th century is well represented, with songs devoted of living composers crying out for greater attention.
Pilgrim's voice is wonderfully expressive. She is ably supported by harpsichordist Edward Smith in the early works, and pianist Steven Heyman in the later repertoire. This is a release that sheds new light on neglected repertoire, and is a must for lovers of the art song. Read less
