“The Unicorn, the Gorgon, and the Manticore: a madrigal opera in one act” is a lovely work by Gian Carlo Menotti, probably best known for the Christmas classic “Amahl and the Night Visitors”. It’s for chamber choir (with some solo parts), small instrumental ensemble, and dancers.
I performed this while with the Oregon State Choir at Oregon State U. (It looks like that has morphed into the Chamber Choir.) Since that performance, I have been looking on and off for a recording. I finally found one last weekend, performed by the Carolina Chamber Choir (T. Koch, conductor).
Here’s the Introduction (1.3MB MP3).
