In this album, the common thread of voice and cello conjures a contemporary musical world rooted in the traditions of a millennium. Soprano Eileen Clark and cellist Matt Haimovitz perform the recital ranging from an Hildegard Von Bingen arrangement to John Tavener's "Ahkmatova Songs", from a first recording of Luna Pearl Woolf's "Epithalamion" to Heitor Villa-Lobos' beloved "Bachianas Brasileirsas No. 5" in which Haimovitz has overlaid the eight parts in the all-cello orchestra. Also included in this chant-infused collection is original improvisation on Pablo Neruda's eponymous poem, "Ode to the Lemon." The album features original color etchings in a multi-panel eco-friendly package with accompanying booklet of the poetry.

The breadth and beauty of the poetry set in these pieces inspired a fine-art book entitled Lemons Descending: Music, Poetry, Etchings, from Oxingale Press. With this recording as its seed and poetry letterpress printed on hand-made paper, the book features the etchings of Michael Kuch, whose interpretations create a visual counterpoint to the compositions.

"We have an unusual recording by artists who have found music that works for them, presenting it in a way that effectively transcends differences of gender, time and place." - Gramophone
