To be part of the creative process of new songs from their inception to fruition is an exhilarating – and altogether humbling – experience. Myriad externalities influence the direction of the journey from the moment the text speaks to a composer until the moment the performers speak the text; but the great wonder is in what happens in between, in the mind and hand of the composer. As a mother, I can only liken this miracle to birth: an essential force comes into the world fully formed, through the conduit of another human being. And once it arrives, you cannot conceive of it never having been. I am grateful to have been some small part of such miracles.
When I recorded the partner CD to The Hours Begin to Sing – And If the Song Be Worth a Smile – I was delighted to include four premiere recordings, one of which I commissioned for the CD. I am thrilled with The Hours Begin to Sing to introduce four more premiere recordings, three of which were written specifically for this disc. And although I cannot claim parentage in this drama of creation, I am honored to have been cast in the role of midwife. 
During the recording of And If the Song Be Worth a Smile, I felt privileged to work with Bill Bolcom, John Corigliano, David Garner, Gordon Getty, Jake Heggie and Luna Pearl Woolf in lending my voice to their songs. To be able to renew these collaborations five years later for The Hours Begin to Sing, and to experience so much of the creative process along the way, have been unforeseen gifts. And what an exceptional gift to bring the words of Dickinson, Yeats, Kinnell, Rumi (translated by Coleman Barks), Sutskever and Arnold Weinstein to life with Kristin Pankonin, Matt Haimovitz, David Krakauer and Maxim Rubtsov! Thank you Bill, John, David, Mr. G, Jake and Luna, for letting your kids come out and play with us.
Lisa Delan - January 2013

"Soprano Lisa Delan sings with commitment and fine musicianship and shows wonderful control, preciseness, and superb diction. This is a wonderful program. She champions American composers and new works... Though there are many remarkable things about this program, the musical collaboration of the ensemble is the key. Each musician displays commitment to the msic, text and collaboration."
