*See also: CTD 88116 Hanson Conducts Hanson (II)

CD $13.98

Superb wide-range stereo recordings with the Mormon Youth Chorus and Symphony live, Salt Lake City, 1972.

Contains notes from the original Festival Program, song lyrics, and an "appreciation" of Howard Hanson, by Jay Welch.

The artistic encounter of Hanson with Whitman was inevitable, and in the first few measures of the Song of Democracy we are aware of the same sweeping lines, the deep humanity that we find in the poem.
