Sometime ago I got a file with a beautiful Song Cycle.
The filename says nothing more than "Gold Songs"

I'm pretty sure it's from an american composer. But who?
It's for soprano and orchestra
Here is that file:

Thanks for your help

Hi Roelof,

without checking things in detail I would assume it should be the cycle of songs by Ernest Gold which our member Sicmu uploaded a few weeks or months ago. Details are:

Ernest Gold (19211999)
"Songs of Love and Parting" for Soprano and Orchestra (1963, orchestrated before 1974)
Marni Nixon, Soprano / Orchestra of the Vienna Volksoper / Ernest Gold

Here are some details about the LP Sicmu uploaded for us:

Thank you very much Holger.

Problem solved.

I use to let the files I cannot find the facts for, be destroyed.
In this case the songs, and the singer are so beautiful, I couldn't simply destry the file.
