Dr. Michael Cooper quote:
I'M EXCITED AND DELIGHTED to share this announcement from my esteemed friends at 
Hildegard Publishing Company
: a new announcement of #MargaretBonds's Six Songs on Poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay, along with two other masterpieces: the Montgomery Variations (1964), which were inspired by Bonds's thirteen-stop southern tour in 1963-64, and the magisterial setting of the civil-rights manifesto Credo by W.E.B. Du Bois, composed in 1966-67 at the height of the Civil Rights movement and the early height of the Vietnam War. These three works (all in source-critical editions by Yours Truly) are the launch of the Margaret Bonds Signature Series, which will bring to light more than thirty otherwise unknown works of that brilliant composer. Stay tuned for more!
