Description: Meow Mix is a collection of Art Songs written for and about cats. Included are Pax, with a text by D.H.Lawrence; Beauty, text by William Blake; Mujer, text by William Carlos Williams; and Alley Cat Love Song, based on Dana Gioia’s comic poem, Alley Cat Love Song. Each song is available in several keys to accommodate different voice types. (To find a "Dog Song" look up "Basket," a song in the voice of Gertrude Stein's standard poodle, Basket.) "The cat of the title of Alleycat Love Song is the composer's own ‘magical cat and mini-muse.’ Here, a light touch enables a beautifully drawn little miniature. PAX, which uses words by D.H. Lawrence to ‘celebrate the spiritual life of Wallach’s cat,’ as the booklet puts it. It is tender and lovely, shot through with innocence." —Colin Clarke, Fanfare
