Music of David Evan Thomas on Spotify

I‘ve created a Spotify playlist as a convenient way to hear my commercially recorded music. It gives a pretty fair overview of my work, approaching from afar with the newest release, From the Land of Song, on the album, Threescore, to the very different style of 1987’s Many Happy Returns, written during my Montana days. In between, you’ll hear two substantial chamber pieces, choral works and several arrangements—even a couple of Holiday selections. The playlist is about the length of a concert. CD players seem to be going the way of the Golden Toad, but order them, if you have the equipment. If you’re streaming, I hope you enjoy this playlist. DET
