Notes & Reviews:

When Elgar’s popular part-song 'My Love Dwelt in a Northern Land' was published in 1890, a ready market for such pieces had been established by the competition festival movement, itself fuelled by the enormous growth in the number of choirs. This wide-ranging selection features several of Elgar’s finest songs, including his best-known work in the genre 'As Torrents in Summer', which boasts a memorable tune, the highly original and chromatic 'Owls', probably the strangest that Elgar ever set, and the ambitious and bitonal 'There is Sweet Music' which the composer himself described as 'a clinker, and the best I have done'.
