The letters of their father have become the text and music for two daughters. Sarah, an accomplished American composer, and Nancy, a published poet, are collaborating on Letter from Italy, 1944. Nancy’s book and Sarah’s score will bring Dr. John Meneely’s story to the entire world when The Greater Middletown Chorale premieres the work in 2013. Throughout the oratorio is threaded the truth that for many warriors, the hardest battles begin at war’s end. The words and music are permeated with love of daughters for their father.
