The following works, I believe, have a political or social context relevant
to the issues of my book; most of them are mentioned in the text.
Anthony, Kris. Requiem: When We No Longer Touch. Dallas
Turtle Creek Chorale and Symphony Orchestra, 1993. AmFar (privately distributed in
stores such as Lambda Rising and CrossRoad's Market).
Bach, J.S. Magnificat, BWV 243. Polygram DG
Beethoven, L.V. Concerto #5 in E-flat for Piano and Orchestra,
"Emperor," Op. 73. Many recordings.
Beethoven, L.V. Symphony #9 in D-minor, "Choral," Op. 125. I recommend Bernstein's recording, titled "Ode to
Freedom," recorded live in Berlin,
Dec. 25, 1989,
shortly after the Berlin Wall fell. Polygram DG 429861
Boito, Arrigo. Mefistofele. CBS-Sony
Britten, Benjamin. Peter Grimes. I recommend Britten's own recording,
containing (in program notes) Philip Brett's essay "The More Vicious the
Society, the More Vicious the Individual: Peter Grimes and its Message."
Britten may have understood the gay identity intellectually better than any
other composer. Polygram/London 414577. Three compact disks.
Britten, Benjamin. Billy Budd. This opera does dramatize the "unit
cohesion" problem, in the 18th Century British Navy. Trouble is, it seems to ratify the Nunn-Moskos
point of view. Get Britten's own recording, Polygram/London 417428.
Charpentier, Marc. David and
Jonathan. Corboz: Lyon.
Corigliano, John. Symphony #1.
Barenboim: Chicago Symphony. BMG/Erato 2292-45601.
Dvorak, Antonin. A Hero's Song, Op. 111. Chandos 8798.

Chicago Symphony and Male Chorus. Polygram/London
Mahler, Gustav. Symphony #2 in C-minor,

Thousand." Part II is a setting of Goethe's Faust. Many recordings.
Mozart, W.A. Concerto #25 for Piano and Orchestra in D Major,

Nielsen, Carl. Saul and David. Chandos 8911/12.
Shostakovich, D. Symphony #13 in B-flat Minor, Op. 113,
"Babi Jar." Set to poetry by
Yevtushenko (1967). The last poem, "A Career," commends Galileo for
looking for scientific truth, and compares him to a contemporary scientist who
gave in to religious orthodoxy because he had a family to support.
Webber, Andrew Lloyd with Tim Rice (lyrics). Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Raincoat (1967). MCA 399. Read all the lyrics; much of it deals with Joseph's
feeling of being born to a "better life" with higher position than
his more fungible brothers.
A Few Good Men (1992). Presents a
view of the Marine Corps "hazing" (Code Red) controversy.
Coming Out Under Fire (1994), based on Allan Berube's book.
Serving in Silence: The Margarethe
Cammermeyer Story (TV-NBC, 1995).
