Gramophone reviews Dreams Melting

“Vocal lines serve the verse… In the ongoing recorded collaborations of tenor James Geer and pianist/musicologist Ronald Woodley… this collection most clearly gives an alternative view of 20th-century British music. The literary factor here is extremely high and diverse. … Arguably, Clarke’s songs are the most distinctive on the disc, including her ‘Cradle Song’, whose harmonies eloquently anticipate the heartbreak to come in a newborn’s life. At times, her songs seem like miniature tone poems for voice and piano… even for those familiar with this repertoire, the sequence of the album is one aspect of the special insights offered here. …both [performers] are clear, engaging conduits of a heady, dense collection of music that requires and rewards repeated listening.”
