I have written and recorded these love songs through a desire to entertain and uplift my family and my friends at home and my acquaintances across the world. I hope that these songs on this first album 'My Lover' can explain something about what I understand of the true nature of 'love', because I have always believed that the best and most far-reaching form of communication about this subject in our day, is the beautiful world of music. A great person whose meaningful words I once read when meditating for some song ideas, wrote: 'Music has the power to remind us of the presence of heaven in our lives on earth and to reveal what heaven really means for each and every one of us as real and perfect individuals'.

Three Willow Park: Electronic Music from Inner Space, 1961 1971, contains 61 previously unissued gems by Raymond Scott (1908-1994). Widely recognized for his jazz-age melodies heard in classic Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck cartoons, Scott was also an electronic music pioneer and instrument inventor. In the 1960s, Scott produced beat-oriented proto-techno in advance of the 1970s explosion of electronic music and rhythms on the pop charts.

Genius can be defined in a number of ways. One such definition is to be the right person in the right place at the right time; another is to have the capacity to move your audience to tears. Monteverdi meets both these criteria with flying colours. His professed ambition was to "move the passions of the soul," thereby drawing tears from his audience, and he achieved this with greater efficacy than any of his contemporaries. The use of the word "madrigal" on the title pages of his eight collections (and a posthumous Ninth Book from 1651) is therefore deceptive, concealing radical stylistic changes which brilliantly reflect the turbulent, exciting times in which he lived.

Back another two centuries, to 1640 and a late masterpiece by the first great figure in opera history: Claudio Monteverdi and his Il ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria – “The Return of Ulysses to his Homeland”. Raymond Leppard conducted a production at Glyndebourne in the early 1970s, based on his own edition of the textually problematic work – there are gaps in the only surviving score. Revived in 1979, the production – which has gone down in the annals of opera legend – was recorded by CBS. Gramophone’s reviewer declared the performance “gloriously vivid in humanity and splendour.

“Raymond Leppard's edition of Poppea, first staged at Glyndebourne in 1962, opened many people's eyes and ears to Monteverdi for the first time. By 1984, though, when Glyndebourne mounted this new production, his Respighi- isation of Monteverdi's sparse original was distinctly old hat. The allegorical prologue was restored; but as well as the lush string textures there remained the downward transposition of castrato roles and the squeezing of three acts into two. Yet only the most fanatical devotee of historically informed performance could fail to respond to this wonderful production with sumptuous designs by John Bury.

Microphone Music is a 2003 double CD compilation by The Raymond Scott Quintette. It is "a collection of unreleased titles, radio performances, first-rate rehearsals and forgotten gems by the Raymond Scott Quintette recorded between 1936 and 1939." (The size of each version are correct, due to this being a mono CD and what it results in when converted to each format.)
