Composer Ricky Ian Gordon has given us another masterpiece in the form of eleven songs written for soprano voice with piano: Too Few the Mornings Be, based on the poetry of Emily Dickinson. Written specially for the great Renee Fleming, this collection contains a personal note from Fleming herself, praising the beauty and freedom of the songs within, saying "I love how you write for the voice; the vocal line moves freely throughout the whole range." This simple, elegant collection is truly a gift to soprano soloists. For the advanced singer.
