5.0 out of 5 stars A Charming Musical Salute to Emily Dickinson May 14, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Between the Bliss and Me" is a wonderful collection of musical settings of poems by the great American poet, Emily Dickinson. The CD gathers compositions which might be familiar to some listeners, particularly the settings composed by Aaron Copland, but there are also works by lesser known composers such as Ernst Bacon, John Duke, Arthur Farwell, Scott Gendel, Lori Laitman and Richard Pearson-Thomas which add an extra dimension to Dickinson's genius. Unlike most modern art song, the songs on this CD have a refreshing melodic quality and Julia Faulkner's voice is quite lovely.
My favorite discovery on the disc is a cycle of five songs entitled "The Shining Place" composed by Lee Hoiby. One song, "A Letter", is a charming setting of one of Dickinson's famous letters to Thomas Wentworth Higginson in which she describes her life and family. The disc is a wonderful addition to any listener's CD library, particularly if they are a fan of both art-song and poetry.
