This is a gathering of old analog recordings (done in stereo nonetheless) of classics of mid- century American music. If you haven't heard Roy Harris's jaunty orchestration of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," you're in for a treat. This is also the only recording on disc of Harris's tragic Epilogue to Profiles in Courage: JFK. William Schuman's Prayer in the Time of War is a meditative tone-poem written in the shadow of World War II. This is also the only recordings of his Symphony 4 as well as John Becker's Symphonia Brevis. Get this for the Harris and the Schuman. --Paul Cook
