Description: These 25 songs make up less than a quarter of Chadwick's output in the genre and give us a fair idea of his range, from the bolero of The Daughter of Mendoza (text by the second President of the Republic of Texas!) to the dozen flower songs which anthropmorphize their subjects, requiring sensitive settings and accompaniments in often strophic forms, to salon-style sentimentalism to the broad humor and thick brogue of the Irish songs. Texts included. Glenn Siebert (tenor), Peter Kairoff (piano).
