While most of William Harold Neidlinger’s solo songs hearken from a time gone by for modern concert audiences, his “Memories of Lincoln,” a setting of selections from Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, is still a stirring tribute to a slain hero.


The audio recording, provided in the audio player to the right, features Thomas Hampson, baritone, and Craig Rutenberg, piano. This song was recorded for Instant Encore as part of American Public Media’s Performance Today series, presented by Classical Minnesota Public Radio. To listen, please click on the track name itself.
