The spirits of Debussy and Ravel hover over these songs. ...the piano provides rich harmonic support and subtle commentary on the text. Ana's lower register is most effective.

Wonderful music. Exuberant notes timely planed. To wisp upon the beauty.

Neil Olmstead’s “Secrets of Ferns” is a stunningly beautiful and variegated collection of songs that sets the text of the poetry in meaningful and creative ways.
The performance with the composer at the piano and mezzo-soprano, Ana Guigui elicits layers of nuance and the listener will be rewarded by enjoying multiple hearings.
- Douglas Johnson, jazz pianist
