Darryl Taylor and Maria Corley Perform H. Leslie Adams’ For You There Is No Song

I've really been enjoying this 2007 video of countertenor Darryl Taylor and pianist Maria Corley performing H. Leslie Adams’ For You There Is No Song at the East Cleveland Public Library. It’s worth noting that Darryl Taylor is also the founder of the African American Art Song Alliance, an organization dedicated to the promotion of the art song written by African American composers. If you find this repertoire as fascinating as I do, a good place to start exploring would be Willis C. Patterson’s Anthology of Art Songs by Black American Composers, in addition to the resources that can be found on Darryl’s AAASA site, and the Africlassical blog.
