  • Those open intervals at the end of the "Simple Gifts" section really do embody the "true American sound."
  • Aaron Copland is the American Elgar. (Or maybe Sir Edward Elgar is the English Copland?!?!)

  • I used to HATE classical. And then one day I was listening to National Public Radio and they had a special on the 100th Anniversary of Copland's birth. I immediately fell in love with Appalacian Spring (and others). Profundity wrapped in similicity!
  • Listening for the first time. Five minutes in, I swear I can hear a huge Holst influence. Keep expecting it to break into "Jupiter"
  • In another misunderstanding involving the title, the word "spring" is usually taken to refer to a season of the year, but it denotes a source of water in the Crane poem. https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Appalachian_Spring
