Ned Rorem in New York - 13 April, 1987
from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 78:
Weekend with Sylvia in Lancaster for Homer premiere, maximally rehearsed and replete with good will. Yet I was taken aback, not hearing it through their ears. The chorus of fifty was composed of amateurs, the three soloists were mediocre, and the eight instrumentalists were toneless.
