    String Quartet No 2

    21st Century. Reviewers, trying to find a label for Godfrey's music, will compare him to Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky, even Barber, using words such as "lyrical," "lush," and always "tonal" and "melodic." 2004 saw the release of an all-Godfrey CD, including String Quartet No. 2, by the Cassatt String Quartet, an album that the New Yorker hailed as one of the 10 best of that year. Formerly available only on a rental basis, String Quartet No. 2 is now available for sale. -the publisher

    "Real sensual warmth, with a touch of the sensibility of Schoenberg's Transfigured Night_ These very touching works are completely tonal and basically pick up from the point where music was derailed some four score years ago_ It is remarkable that music like this is being written, recorded, and widely celebrated." -Robert Reilly, Surprised by Beauty: A Listener's Guide to the Recovery of Modern Music (Ignatius Press)
