The LP – and this CD, the first appearance on Decca and mastered from the original tapes – also includes Billings’s own Hymns, as well as William Schuman’s New England Triptych is subtitled ‘Three pieces for orchestra after William Billings’. The CD includes the original LP liner notes and complete sung texts.
