His interest in new music goes back a
long way and he's still championing American composers like Rorem and
Lieberson. A remarkable personality !

"I think there must be a place in the soul,
All made of tunes, of tunes of long ago.
I hear the organ on the main street corner,
Aunt Sarah humming Gospels summer evenings
The villiage cornet band, playing in the square.
The town’s Red, White, and Blue, all Red, White and Blue.
Now! Hear the songs! I know not what are the words
But they sing in my soul of the things our Fathers loved."
