Henry’s new album, At That Hour: Art Songs by Henry Dehlinger, was released today by AVIE Records. It is now streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, YouTube Music, and more. The CD is also available for purchase from Presto Classical, Naxos Direct, ArkivMusic, Amazon, and other music retailers around the world. You can buy or stream now!
The album is a superlative showcase for Henry's craftsmanship as a composer as well as his close collaborators, husband-and-wife team soprano Danielle Talamantes and bass-baritone Kerry Wilkerson, for whose voices the art songs in this recital were written.
The title track opens Henry’s 10-part song cycle set to texts by James Joyce. Inspiration for other songs comes from poetry by Dante, Edgar Allen Poe, Oscar Wilde, and the Biblical Song of Songs. Throughout, Henry’s modern yet tonal compositional voice shines through as he renders a diverse palette of musical styles to amplify the words he sets to music.
