Thursday assorted John Adams links

1. Christian Zeal and Activity (John Adams).

2. On the Transmigration of Souls (John Adams, 2002).

I sometimes think of Adams’s best work as pretending to serve up corny and slightly obvious Americana, but in fact offering a mysterious, Eastern, and even Buddhist alternative history of the United States.  My other favorite pieces by Adams are the Violin Concerto and The Dharma at Big Sur.
