Singers to Come

Singers to Come

Product Number: 7523

Composer: Thomas, David Evan



"Singers to Come brings together four poets—a Romantic, a Victorian, and two contemporary Americans—whose subject is passionate singing. The familiar origins of song in the sights and sounds of nature is painted in moonlight to guitar accompaniment by Shelley. Galway Kinnell's earnest treble choir reminds us—to a hint of 'A Balm in Gilead'—that 'everyone who truly sings is beautiful.' Minnesota-born Richard Eberhart's driving, concise lines focus our awareness: 'Be tree and bird.' Alice Meynell looks to the future and exhorts us to pass it on. As an avid choral singer myself, I can only add: 'Alleluia, Amen.'" -David Evan Thomas
