The conductor of this performance posted it, I like how he gave full credit to everyone, wish they did that more often. I also like how Halsey Stevens and his wife were acknowledged at the end of the recording.
Halsey Stevens was a very good composer and scholar, probably most known for his biography of Bela Bartok and editor of a collection of his letters. You can, at times, hear the influence of Bartok but Stevens' style was always original enough so that you could hear his music was his own. I wish people recorded more of his many choral works because those I've seen and the few I've read through are very fine.
