Songs of Margaret Ruthven Lang
By Song of America
In preparing to promote Delos’ January release Love is Everywhere, we asked pianist Lucy Mauro and tenor Donald George to reflect a bit on why they decided to record the songs of female American composer Margaret Ruthven Lang. They provided so many anecdotes and such rich, historical information that we decided that we must share it all with you. After reading, let us know what you find most interesting about Ms. Lang, the first woman to have had her music performed by a major American orchestra (Boston).
