Contains the fifth song from GAY LIFE, Here.
The song New Year's Eve from the cycle On Wings of Song is included on this disc
Composed in the 1980's, this is a refreshingly accessible major composition. The performance is magnificent, with Barbara Hendricks reading and singing the text adapted from the work of Lewis Carroll. The great Georg Solti leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (for which the work was comissioned) rousingly, and the sound is first-rate.
