Reviews
...EMERSON [is] a setting of two prose passages from the great Transcendentalist's writings. Harbison doubles the bass of these dense choral settings with cello and bass. This piece is another good example of musical settings of Transcendentalist prose...Essential repertoire.
Allen Gimbel, American Record Guide,1/1/0001
