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.
