Description: The cycle, Songs of the Cotton Grass, evolved over six years with all texts by Welsh poet Menna Elfyn. These “reverse lullabies” -- in which a daughter lulls her mother to sleep -- recall the open, high moorland of South Wales, near the composer’s home. The first song, is A Girl’s Song to Her Mother. (Audio features Elizabeth Donovan, soprano; Matthew Jones, viola.)
