Elinor Remick Warren
Athens [Greece] Vrathyni, 1955
"[Singing Earth] fascinated the audience ... Based on a poem by the American poet, Carl Sandburg, Miss Warren's composition is characterized by a noble romanticism and sensibility, and reveals a serious composer who possesses all the secrets of technique."
