    The review does not point out that the CD title and song titles come from an e.e. cummings poem, "in Just--" (with cumming's capitalization kept intact) that was published as one of 3 "Chansons Innocentes," echoing Blake's "Songs of Innocence." I think that a review should recognize this. I haven't heard the CD, but I assume the poem has something to do with the conception and execution of the music. For instance, 'goat-footed" comes last and not after "spring" for a reason: it's in the last line of the poem.
