Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Recorded in the music room of Parry's boyhood home, Highnam Court in Gloucestershire, this disc sheds light on an area of the repertoire that has rarely graced the concert hall in recent times. As English song came into full flower at the turn of the 20th century, Parry's substantial contribution to the genre became somewhat buried. Now, Iain Burnside and his singers rediscover what has been forgotten by historical accident. Combining an innately English sensibility with a technical fastidiousness that owes much to the lieder of Brahms, Schumann, and Wolf, every one of these songs demonstrates Parry's fundamental concern for sincerity and proper declamation of the words. Hubert Parry is undergoing something of a revival, and these performances return his songs to the heart of his output, where the composer always felt they belonged.
