Admirers of Morton Gould may find this release [Guild Music GHCD 2256/57] noteworthy for the only recorded representation of A Lincoln Legend. Like its natural musical analogue, Copland's Lincoln Portrait, Gould's 16-minute symphonic impression was composed during World War II, when patriotic concerns were in the air. Gould's piece was actually completed before Copland's, although its premiere, captured here, took place several months after that of the other.
