When Claire Gignac began to put together the program of love songs that make up this recording, she wanted to encompass the many centuries during which we have been writing such songs.   She immediately ran into a problem: "There are millions of them," she says.   "I did a lot of research and a lot of listening and reading, trying to find the right songs and poems.   I didn't want to sing all happy love songs or all sad ones, and I wanted to find songs that give different perspectives of love."   Even with the wealth of material available, "it's more difficult to find happy love songs.   Longing is there of course, but I found poems that are also very serene, like the beautiful one by Victor Hugo.
