Album Remarks & Appraisals:

The Guardian
Beautifully sung by Ailish Tynan and James Gilchrist. It shows that Herbert's literary taste was as discriminating as her music; the settings here range from medieval lyrics to James Joyce, as well as the inevitable Housman and Hardy. If her music is innately conservative, her harmonic palette and melodic invention are individual; these songs linger in the memory.

Gramophone Magazine
Muriel Herbert's music deserves it place alongside the more famous names of the time. Her work has been magnificently serves by the artists on this disc. Both Ailish Tynan and James Gilchrist seem to have made a leap forward as interpreters of English song; their diction is beautifully clear, without any recourse to archness or over-emphasis that can so quickly spoil this sort of repertory. David Owen Norris plays all the songs with evident affection and devotion.

Album Notes

Personnel: Ailish Tynan (soprano); David Owen Norris (piano); James Gilchrist (tenor).
