This three-part cycle of 36 songs represents Rorem's magnum opus in the medium.

As America's premiere writer of classical vocal works states, "...I embarked on the madness of a composer's career by writing songs...My singular reputation, such as it is, has always centered around song..." The present work is based on texts by 24 composers that "seem endemic to this autumnal moment, as I look back to a youth 'which foresaw in the light of a summer day the end of all life.'"
Contents:
Ned Rorem, composer
Evidence of Things Not Seen
Tammy Tyburczy, soprano, Alexis Barthelemy, mezzo-soprano, Glenn Alamilla, tenor, James J. Kee, baritone, Mikael Eliasen, piano

Review:
"...the power and urgency of the piece now comes through in full force in the performances by vocalists from the Curtis Institute. ...I own more than two dozen Rorem CDs, but this new set will be one of the most treasured." (Albany Times Union)
