Kenneth Seitz conducts the Cambridge Chorale (1983)


——-
This set was commissioned by Kenneth Seitz and the Cambridge Chorale and stylistically picks up where Book 1 left off. Most of the “madrigals” are in ABA or ABCA, with a repeat of the opening material. All my roots show in this one. As I was about to move to LA to take a new post at UCLA, it was my last appearance as a Composer in Red Sneaker, after which, they hoisted my sneakers to the rafters in Sanders Theater.
