These January red letter days – the birthdays of ten composers, five poets, and two great songs, and the deaths of two composers and nine poets – represent as random a selection of unlikely bedfellows as only chance can select. The secret of any anthology, however, is to make the progression of information, in this case music, pleasing enough to appear logical, even inevitable, and for the whole to be more than the sum of its many parts.
