Monadnock Tales CD: Additional Details

The Light Staccato of Souls was commissioned by Tom Putnam in memory of his father, David F. Putnam, a visionary and global citizen committed to his communities. Encompassing three winning entries from Tricinium's poetry contest on the theme of community, these songs emerged as love songs demonstrating the passion of people for the personal, local and everyday: our families, friends, partners, associates and neighbors.
