About

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), sixteenth President of the United States, has inspired many works of literature, art and music. To celebrate the bicentennial of Lincolnís birth, the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, Leonard Slatkin and Naxos have selected eight important works by leading American composers, some setting Lincolnís own immortal words, some words of poets inspired by him, others based on Lincolnís life and ideals.

Turokís Variations on an American Song: Aspects of Lincoln and Liberty is based on a folk tune Lincoln used as a campaign song, Rosin the Bow.
