Description: A student of Chadwick, Paine and MacDowell among others, Lang's credentials are irreproachable and anyone interested in American song will not hesitate. There is nothing of great depth in the poetry but quite a bit of interest will be grabbed by the sheer melodic invention and variety of expression Lang demonstrates. Texts available on CD-ROM which came with Vol. 1 (02M068). Donald George (tenor), Lucy Mauro (piano).
