Walton, Britten, Tippett, etc. Sarah Leonard, Malcolm Martineau. This is closely linked to the next CD in the catalogue, and is the first of a major new series of albums devoted to English songs of the last 100 years. The performances are infused with love and genuine artistry, and are recorded very well. Strongly recommended.

“O the pleasure of discovering these songs in performances as good as these” – The Gramophone
