Three examples of Leonard Berstine's vocal art can be heard in this recording. His Symphony No. 3 "Kaddish" shuns traditional symphonic ideas in favor of an eclectic theatrical and oratorio-like form with a prominent role for speaker. For this recording Marin Alsop has returned to the work's original narrative text, heard before the 1977 revision. The Lark - heard in a concert version with added narration - derives from Lillian Hellman's adaptation of L'Alouette on the life of Joan of Arc, and it was this music that Bernstein reworked into his Missa Brevis many years later.
