Description: Although all of this repertoire has appeared on Naxos (the song cycle just a few months ago), these are important historical documents, the recordings of Mirages and Naiades having been made within a year of composition while the second disc represents the milestone some Lyrita collectors have been anticipating: the mono recordings which Richard Itter, founder of Lyrita, made himself back in the 50s. Texts included.
