Album Notes
One day, I said to Joan (by email), why don't we do an album together and even though she had to do all the work, I did provide some funds and a whole lot of encouragement. I think it took us 10 months emailing the while to actually finish the project. Joan posted rehearsals on Esnips, I sent some of those rehersals around to my friends as a test drive. I made this cover and put in the drawings some of the music was written for. And to think, we've never met. We leaned to trust over a fiber optic magic web around the world. Joan made all the arrangements on this album.

Joan made score arrangements, arrangements for rehearsals and recording and for dinner. Joan is recently retired from the Music Conservatory Luigi Cherubini in Florence, Italy and as the Director of the Childrens Choir, Youth Choir and Young Madrigal Singers of the Music School of Fiesole. Nine of the ten singers in Tempus Floridum studied as children in the Fiesole Youth Choirs.

You can hear Canary Burton's touch
Just lovely...the voices ebb and swell...not unlike the sounds of the sea. Canary has done it again, and this time in tandem with Joan...together they have melded notes and sounds and produced candy for the ears.

Excellent Quality
One doesn't often find a CD with this kind of depth and variety. Here are friends who have never met but have collaborated in so many ways to produce a fascinating CD of beautiful music beautifully performed. Canary Burton is an artist as well as a composer, and when she sent several of her paintings to Joan Yakkey, Joan was so impressed and moved that she used them as inspiration for several of her songs. Anybody listening to this CD will be impressed not only by the quality of the composition, but also by the excellence of the vocal ensemble.

Rich, Warm and Consistently Engaging!
This CD features "Tempus Floridum," a ten-voice women's chorus based in Florence, Italy. Their singing is rich, warm and consistently engaging. You can hear their passion. The 19 tracks of this CD move about in an astonishing range of musical styles. There are arrangements of Italian folksongs but also a slew of very original pieces. The inventiveness never ceases. Much of the music is a cappella but there are surprising accompaniments featuring harp, cello, piano, et al. The stylistic influences are many but the influence of jazz is the most predominant. Yet you would never call this music "jazz" as such. Some of this music is probing, some of it light and humorous, some of it poignant and affecting, most notably Canary Burton's "American Lullabye." All of it rewards careful listening.
