Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Pope, a pupil of Robin Ireland, wrote for the most part so gently that he might not have been heard at all. But the quiet tunes sometimes acquire a recognisable personality...Both pianist and singer give sensitive, able assistance...their styles, like that of the composer, share a quality of undemonstrative rightness such as one comes to value increasingly on every encounter.

International Record Review
The songs on this disc exclusively tonal and melodic with echoes of Ireland and Finzi as much as Fauré and Ravel. They are also for the most part delicate, if smouldering with restraining passion...[Legg and Martin-Davis] lavish on Pope's songs a measure of affection commensurate with their considerable technical and musical abilities and are to be applauded for bringing such wonderful music to a wider audience.
