I've only heard a small sample of Lisa Moore's recording of this. Compared to Rzewski's own recording the vocal and hence text seems far more prominent in Lisa Moore's mix. In Rzewski's version I felt the text was deeply buried. Reminded me of Keith Jarrett's gutteral moaning.. an understated counterpoint to his piano. Very different almost polar opposite emphasis to the text in Coming Together in which the spoken word attacks the listener in a percussive barrage that throws the instrumental score far into the background.
