Notes & Reviews:

Among his many distinctions over a long career, Ian Partridge contributed to the catalog two recordings of music for tenor and small ensemble to which reviewers constantly return as their benchmark: On Wenlock Edge (Vaughan Williams) and The Curlew (Warlock). Here they are together, in two CDs from the mid-1990s, the second of them an anthology issued to mark Warlock's centenary.

BBC Music Magazine
Classic 1970s recordings by the Partridge siblings, and such luminaries as Janet Craxton. On Wenlock Edge - chamber version - still sounds excellent, while the Warlock disc is distinctly special.
