Sweeet Emmeline...(oh-oh-oh)

For those of you who enjoyed the AmTrag but haven't had a chance to hear Picker's Emmeline, here's a little taste.*
  • A fine example of Picker's choral writing, "To Cheerfulness Inclining" mp3

  • Comme toujours, Pat Racette tears it up in this aria opening the second act mp3

  • Matthew (tenor Curt Peterson) tells how it was in Kansas mp3

  • And in the proto-Zajick part, mezzo Anne-Marie Owens takes Pat's baby away mp3
The recording is Santa Fe Opera under George Manahan. Full details, synopsis, are here, buy it here.

*limited time only...while supplies last
