This CD features the Andre Kostelanetz Orchestra with a selection of music pieces which together create the concept of the passing of time in relation to the seasons with the voices of spring Summertime Autumn Leaves and White Christmas. Interspersed between these musical reflections are four pieces of spoken verse maybe the best known and loved in the English language they compliment the tone of the music and set the tone for the music you hear in each section of the CD. The Spoken Pieces are: William Wordsworth's Daffodils Shall I Compare Thee To A Summers Day (Sonnet No. 18) by William Shakespeare Brief Life by Ernest Dowson from which came the line Days of wine and roses which was the inspiration for the Motion Picture and the song composed by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer and lastly from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night If Music Be The Food Of Love. A nice CD for those in a more reflective or contemplative mood.
