Whitman some more?

A friend in England today had his first listen to Vaughan Williams's A Sea Symphony;  and I am myself edging closer to at last listening to Holst's setting of The Mystic Trumpeter.  The curiousest thing of all this Whitman-love of this week being, that I've had a discussion today about a possible commission to set a Whitman text for solo voice accompanied by organ.
