Jemmie Robertson-

I have a deep sense of gratitude to all of the composers whose works are featured on this album for the beautiful and moving music that they have brought to the world. Also, I am profoundly thankful of the many women who have enriched my musical and personal life. This project is a tribute to them.

It is impossible to succinctly thank all those who have inspired me, supported me, encouraged me, collaborated with me, and directly contributed to this project, yet, at the conclusion of these notes is my attempt. In the meantime, I hope that sense of gratitude and thankfulness is conveyed through the performances captured on this recording. I hope you enjoy the wonderful music selected for this project. It has been my honor to record these composers works.
