A Ned Rorem Reader

BY NED ROREM

Brief Description:
This anthology of his musings on music, people, and life surveys the full range of his literary achievement and reflects the evolution of his sensibilities. "Myself, raised in Quaker silence, I craved Catholic sound. Is that why some invisible hand urged me as a child toward the arts? To this day, although Quaker tenets in?uence my reason, my fancy is more sparked by the ?re of the Mass. Being unreligious so far as ordered belief is concerned, it is not the purpose but the pomp - not salvation but sensuality - which attracts me in worship. To be a birthright member of the Society of Friends and to be a composer is to embody the paradox of reconciling implicit quiet with explicit sound."
