Notes & Reviews:

"This RCA disc of orchestral, vocal and choral items provides a fascinating tangential addendum... The vocal items are shared between the excellent San Francisco choirs and the doyen amoung today's Ivesian singers, Thomas Hampson... Tilson Thomas similarly conveys everything from the raucous patriotism of the wartime march 'They are There!' to the existential spaciousness of 'The Unanswered Question'... The SFS's playing is outstanding throughout." ***** -Matthew Rye BBC Music
