Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...his music is a disarming mix of spare lyricism, poignancy and gently nose thumbing irreverence. His Eventideis a one-act chamber opera, based on James Purdy's short story of the same name; the richly evocative music takes up where Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915 leaves off. Karen Williams and Hillary Johnsson sing lusciously, and Williams does well, too, by the six miscellaneous songs. Joyce Castle makes a lively case for the sassy settings of lines form a Berlitz language primer...Fennimore himself accompanies tellingly in the songs."
