If you move quick (it may already be too late), you might be able to pick up the deluxe edition which includes In May, Hannon’s second involvement in operetta, in which he scores (and here sings) the words of Frank Alva Buecheler’s play in the form of letters from a son to father as he grapples with terminal cancer. It’s in stark contrast from the main album. It’s not without humour, but it is black humour and the tale is sad and tragic and often harrowing as hope is lost, sometimes rekindled and finally extinguished. It’s a tough listen because of the subject matter but it’s gripping and very good. Song cycles (as they’re often referred to) are often hard work and a struggle to get through, not this one, however; its tale draws you in and you desire to see how this plays out. It’d be a shame if this is only ever available only via this limited deluxe CD set as it deserves a much larger audience.
