Soprano Measha Brueggergosman-Lee counts Margaret Atwood among her friends, and this new songbook is a byproduct of their mutual admiration. The texts come from Dearly, a collection of poetry Atwood published in 2020, and they’re set to music by Aaron Davis, the two-time Juno Award-winning pianist, arranger and composer who has collaborated with Brueggergosman-Lee on four previous albums. Davis also plays on the album as part of a jazz rhythm section. The participation of the venerable Hannaford Street Silver Band adds an intriguing dimension to the cycle’s sound-world, expanding the expressive palette to underscore the incisive social commentary in Atwood’s poems. — RR
