 Wonderful introduction to previously unknown comp August 21, 2013 By Richard M. (Oxford, OH) See All My Reviews "I ordered this CD for Creston's Gregorian Chant after hearing it played on my local NPR classical music station. Roy Harris's Folksong Symphony was a delightful addition to the CD. Both compositions are highly enjoyable to anyone who appreciates compositions based on early folk songs and melodies. Together they make for a very enlightening listening session." Report Abuse
