American composer Will Ayton's love of folk music, Elizabethan poetry, his Celtic heritage, his devotion to the art of polyphony, his love of old legends, and things philosophical and spiritual all shine through in this mesmerizing CD, featuring the song cycle, A Reliquary for William Blake, composed for Parthenia in 2005.  Mezzo-soprano Alexandra Montano‚Äôs purity of tone, both as singer and as narrator in the prose passages, makes her an ideal interpreter.
