"Elements of Style" set to music!

On Morning Edition this morning, I heard lovely music composed by Nico Muhly. It was from a "musical adaptation in the form of a song cycle" of Strunk & White's Elements of Style. Cool idea, eh?

It was performed recently in the reading room of the New York Public Library. There are two long sound samples at npr.org. I wish I had been there.

Oh my goodness. This is great and I'd missed the NPR story. Thanks for sharing it!
