Composer Zachary Wadsworth ’07 MM has released a new album of music entitled “The Far West.” The recording was conducted by Timothy Shantz, and performed by tenor Lawrence Wilford with Luminous Voices, a professional chamber choir based in Calgary, Alberta.
The album’s central work, which also lends the album its title, sets the text of Tim Diugos, a poet who died of AIDS in 1990 while studying at the Yale Divinity School. The cantata explores the defiance of a poet who chose to live with lightness and dignity in the face of plague and loss. MORE
