Read Jeremy Eichler's review in The Boston Globe, "Honoring the War's End, in Verse and Song":
"...the singers of the Boston Children’s Chorus (led by Anthony Trecek-King) and Coro Allegro (led by David Hodgkins) were on hand to deftly present the works. Among them... Pablo Ortiz’s elegant and richly layered setting of Richard Blanco’s “Leaving Limerick in the Rain,” which was also recited separately by the poet himself..."
