For the public radio station here, WRTI (and to coincide with Election Day), I wrote an article on Copland's Lincoln Portrait, touching on a bit of history, context, and of course, versions worth hearing. (There are a lot of them!)

Excellent article Bruce.
I was fascinated to see Copland narrating himself with Bernstein conducting - a most moving and much-needed performance. I wish that there was a CD recording.
