Virgil Thomson - Collected Songs by : Virgil Thomson
This is the first substantial collection ever published of songs by Virgil Thomson (1896-1989); composer of the operas The Mother of Us All and Four Saints in Three Acts. Thomson's musical style was based in Americana; but he was attracted to abstract poetry. The unique result is traditionalism turned on its ear. The songs date from 1926 until 1974.
