Check out Gene Lees' book "Singers and the Song" for lots of info regarding this project.  Lees was responsible for setting the poems to music.  It's been years since I've read the book.  It will tell you far more than you'd ever care to know.  This recording was re-issued on CD a few years ago.  I can't comment on the music as I don't recall ever hearing it.
