Soprano Allison Angelo's debut CD recording, Moon Loves Its Light, celebrates the moon, dreams and the night.

A collection of French mélodies and English Canadian art songs in which masterpieces by Debussy, Poulenc, Faure, and Hahn are intermingled with treasures by Canadian greats Morawetz and Somers, along with contemporary voices like Lloyd Burritt and Ian Bent, who's song, Old Moon, was specially commissioned for the CD. The CD title is from Marilyn Lerch's collection of poetry, Moon Loves Its Light, (Moraine House, 2004).
