Notes and Editorial Reviews

Effortlessly traversing musical styles ranging from Baroque to Yiddish folk to jazz, Charles Davidson is one of today's most colorful and engaging composers. Already famous worldwide for his acclaimed song cycle I Never Saw Another Butterfly, Charles Davidson presents in these new recordings other facets of his musical imagination. In A Singing of Angels, he vibrantly depicts the lost world of eastern European Jewry in delightful English-language versions of Yiddish folksongs set for children's choir. Baroque Suite, also scored for children's voices, celebrates the golden age of Spanish- Hebrew poetry in settings inspired by 17th-century dance suites. The innovative ...And David Danced Before the Lord is the first Jewish sacred service to Read more be composed in the jazz and blues idioms, featured here with the acclaimed Ramon Ricker Quintet.
