Fern Hill, choral work by John Corigliano

I just heard a marvelous choral work by John Corigliano on WQXR's Q2 Music's program, ' The Choral Mix With Kent Tritle'.

It is Fern Hill, set to the poem by Dylan Thomas, composed in 1959 when he was 21.

This performance (directed by Kent Tritle) starts one third of the way into the program. (Press the Full Player button; find the August 5, 2012 program; click 'ADD THIS'.) To position to Fern Hill: pause the WQXR website player; wait awhile for buffering. Then click just left of the host's last name (in the series title).

There's a review of a previous performance in the New York Times.
