Notes & Reviews:

"This welcome reissue of Hyperion's 1990 recording (66161) presents 43 of Finzi's 50 Hardy settings. Martyn Hill and Stephen Varcoe both have glowing light lyric voices and a quintessentially English approach to these songs. Their voices are so well matched that they sound almost like one voice at different pitches... This set is particularly worth hearing." -American Record Guide

'These are marvellous songs' (Oxford Times)

'There are so many really subtle and distinguished performances in this set, and so much sheerly beautiful singing, that I shall be listening to it often over the years' (Gramophone)
