Notes & Reviews:

This series devoted to one of America's most significant composers brings together 12 vocals works, all but one written in the last two decades. Most of the shorter selections were composed for the Works and Process at the Guggenheim sereies in New York, and were designed for programs honoring the various poets (Les Murray, John Ashbery, Derek Walcott, Stanley Kunitz and Paul Auster).
