A Celebration of Love

Gustav Holst (1874-1934): Six Choral Folksongs
Cecilia McDowall (b. 1951): A Fancy of Folksongs
Conrad Susa (1935-2013): Carols and Lullabies

Charming melodies, witty poetry, humorous or poignant story-lines make folksongs and lullabies everlasting gems.

Gustav Holst’s Six Choral Folksongs presents a wide range of character and emotion — from hauntingly poignant (“I Love My Love”) to robust ("Swansea Town").

Contemporary British composer Cecilia McDowall introduces listeners to love and courtship, flavored with both swagger and lyricism. Arranged for chorus and harp accompaniment, A Fancy of Folksongs invites us to joyfully celebrate youthful love.

Christmas carols, with their singable, memorable melodies and narrative texts, are much like folksongs. American composer Conrad Susa’s Carols and Lullabies is a collection of Spanish, Puerto Rican, Mexican, and Catalonian carols, all popular in the American Southwest. His delicate scoring of the accompaniment calls for harp, guitar, and marimba, to create a magical texture over which the carol melodies sparkle and dance.
