"Twilight" is another beautiful, recording of a live concert with a classical, romantic theme by Melodia Women's Choir of New York City. Since its founding in 2003 by Executive Director Jenny Clark and Conductor Cynthia Powell, 32-strong Melodia's reputation and stature on the NYC Choral scene has been steadily rising. There are 21 songs here, some accompanied by piano and strings. Some of our favorites are Gustav Holst's "Seven Partsongs for Female Voices and Strings," "Three Partsongs" by Peter Warlock, Timothy Luby's "When I Am Dead, My Dearest," and four by Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel, the partsongs "Abschied" (Farewell) and "Winterseufzer" (Winter Sigh), and "Adagio ma non troppo" and "Allegretto," of the two-part "String Quartet in E-flat." Most of these songs are new to us, and all are exquisitely performed. "Twilight" is a wonderful collection by one of NYC's finest women's Choral ensembles!
