Gentle Lady, do not sing sad songs...

In these well-programmed songs for baritone, "Gentle Lady", features two distinguished composers of the 20th century whose working lives were centered in Western Canada.  The essential lyricism of Jean Coulthard and the clarity and boldness of expression characteristic of Violet Archer seems somehow rooted in this dynamic geography even as these songs travel in both time and place, seeking a contrast of inspiration.
