Songwriter/composer Bob Warren has written a song cycle/narrative about the great Susan B. Anthony. “Only the Message Mattered” focuses on the early influences that shaped her, and on the famous 1873 trial The United States of America vs. Susan B. Anthony, a result of her casting a ballot in the elections of 1872.
“Only the Message Mattered” has been presented on numerous occasions since it’s creation, (see review below). Now, the songs and incidental music are gathered together on CD for the first time.
The album was recorded by Chris Roberson and features cellist Monica Roach, pianist Bob Warren, and singer/narrators Brittany Rivers, Rebecca Rogers and Barbara Skiff.
