Misc. Comments

Choruses- female and male etc.- but the work centers on Himris, queen of the Amazons- and Gandhar, leader of the Persians, who she has captured- and their conflict. Chorus, three soloists, orchestra.

Chapter 3 of McCann's thesis (1999-2003) (pp.65-118) is devoted to this one work. Analyzed in detail there (can be freely downloaded for study purposes at the link provided on the composer category page.)
