Description: Up Into the Silence is an unaccompanied cycle of seven songs with texts by e.e.cummings. Playful and poignant, the songs explore a wide range of moods and vocal colors. Written originally as a complete cycle for low voice, individual songs from Up Into the Silence may easily (as there is no accompaniment) be excerpted and transposed as needed to suit the range and tessitura of other singers. Two versions of Up Into the Silence are available on Compact Disc: one by the Israeli mezzo-soprano Mira Zakai, the other by the German tenor, Gregory Wiest. Reviews: “…a cappella with sexy and funny vocal lines…,the music boosted the flow of the text and gave it added color, charm and spin,- exciting, unusual and quite marvelous.”—Review by Mark Greenfest for the IAWM Journal “The music boosts the flow of the text, and gives it added color, charm and spin. Exciting, unusual and quite marvelous.”—Mark Greenfest for New Music Connoiseur, February 26, 2004 Recordings : Capstone Records Up into the Silence (CPS-8636) IMA Recordings Mira Zakai Unaccompanied: Up into the Silence
