Charles Ives wrote almost two hundred songs. Although his reputation rests on orchestral, chamber and piano music, it is Ives's songs that represent the heart of his creative thinking. The expressive variety encountered is accordingly vast: indeed, the gradual evolution of Ives’s songwriting is analogous to the wider evolution of American music during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This new edition includes all the songs that Ives completed. The alphabetic approach ensures that each volume (of which this disc is the first of six) contains a representative cross-section.

Gramophone Magazine

October 2008

“Tackling the huge Ives songbook alphabetically gives us welcome variety. Anyone seriously interested in Ives warts-and-all will want to be on board for this series.”

Classics Today

“All of the soloists, who represent all voice-parts are first-rate singers, many quite young with blooming opera careers, each with a clear and compelling competence in how to sing songs. And these aren't just any songs, but some of the most fascinating, engaging, joyful, humorous, nostalgic, sentimental, artfully written songs in the repertoire.”

The Guardian

“These songs, with all their quirks and flights of fantasy, [are] among the most important of the 20th century in any language.”
