The history of setting literary text in music is a considerable one, from Schubert’s Lieder to Benjamin Britten’s Serenade to art songs of the 21st century. Composer Michael Murray presents four song cycles on his Navona Records releases PERCIPIENCE, all of which emphasize the deep connection between poetry and music as varying means of expression that can reveal different facets of the same idea. Gapplegate says, “Murray gives us songs that stand out. They are masterful examples of the form in our contemporary world.”
