To a Fat Lady Seen from the Train is a cycle of four songs for women's choir, viola, and piano written by Martin J. Wimmer between 1991-2007. The original poem is a triolet written by English poet Frances Cornford (1886-1960). She was Charles Darwin's granddaughter. Wimmer set it to music in 1991 while studying songwriting at SUNY Purchase. Sixteen years later, he discovered the three subsequent poems, each written as a rebuke of the original. The collection is dedicated to composer/pianist Roland E. Martin and mezzo-soprano Denise Blackmore who premiered the original song in 1992. The complete song cycle was recorded by the Freudig Singers of Western New York in 2009 on their CD titled, The Phat Lady Sings produced by Mark Custom Recordings #7907 MCD.
