Robert Young's choral writings are famous for their warm, rich voicings, suspensions and resolutions. Using the poem of one of his favorite authors, Christina Rossetti, he has created another small masterpiece. The setting of "Lovesight" illuminates the rich beauty of the Dante Rossetti text. The expression is full and deep in both word and music. Using a cappella voices and violin obbligato, the new American sea-chantey "Annabel Lee" mourns the loss of the storyteller's love, Annabel Lee. An excellent concert piece for high school. The title "Chanticleer" alone makes us think of musical excellence, and Robert Young's setting of the William Austin (1587-1633) poem more than meets the demand. Celebrating the incarnation of Christ, this piece contains the classic sounds for which Robert Young has become famous. Excellent for church or concert.
