For her second full-length, and major-label debut, Canadian singer Serena Ryder chose to mainly focus on the songs of others, specifically, other Canadians, writing just three of the tracks on If Your Memory Serves You Well. Those three tracks, in fact, happen to be the weakest – most predictable, with the most clichéd lyrics and progressions, and the ones on which the super-clean production seems the most forced – on the entire album.
Serena along with Regina Albanez on theorbo and baroque guitar and Pauline Schenk on harpsichord recorded the CD "Udite, amanti" (Listen, dear ones!). The CD is an anthology of early Baroque songs by composers such as Monteverdi, Merula, Strozzi, Caccini and Lambert. Inja Botden accompanies three songs along on baroque cello and guest tenor Georgi Sztojanov will sing two duets with Serena.
