"...Around the time of the Bicentennial, when I got a commission to write my American Cantata, I found the need to be American again in my music, as I was in my early music. I started to combine my adventurousness of my more recent music with my earlier traditional style. And I found that I could be just as crazy, while being at the same time, to a certain extent, traditional!" (excerpted from a Foss interview with classical radio host Bruce Duffie) A manuscript score is now available as custom print, offering a special glimpse into the genesis of this major Foss choral work.
