Description: Since 73 of the 108 minutes of music here are songs, this is pretty much going to be a very small-selling item. But 13 of the songs and the 3 pièces for piano are first recordings, the notes are extensive and the performers top-notch while the music is late Romantic with many chromatic elements with Fauré and Debussy among the occasional identifiable influences. Boulanger composed in a small window given her long life and career as a highly influential and beloved teacher - she began writing music in 1901 and quit in 1922. 2 CDs. Nicole Cabell (soprano), Alek Shrader (tenor), Edwin Crossley-Mercer (baritone), Amit Peled (cello), François-Henri Houbart (organ), Lucy Mauro (piano).
