       Delius: Sea Drift (24:52)

      Leon Williams, baritone; Master Chorale of Tampa Bay; Florida Orchestra / Stefan Sanderling

      “Appalachia” (a native American word for North America) is a set of variations based on a slave song, which Delius heard when teaching in Virginia. In “Sea Drift,” Delius absorbed another American influence in the mysticism of Walt Whitman. The symphonic poem is a song of love and death in which the baritone soloist is both a participant in the drama and offers a commentary upon it.
