Notes & Reviews:

This is the first CD in a four-disc series that will comprise the first complete recording of the songs of John Ireland (1879 - 1962) for voice and piano. There are a considerable number of omissions in the Ireland discography, and this complete survey will rectify that, presenting every song with the full texts and detailed notes that have become the trademark of Stone Records' releases. This first volume includes five premiere recordings: the excellent ballads that Ireland composed under the pseudonym Turlay Royce. These rarities are presented alongside some of his most famous settings of Masefield (Sea fever), Housman (The heart's desire), and Brooke (Spring sorrow). Ireland's songs are well loved by singers and listeners alike; hauntingly poignant and beautifully melodious, they are the epitome of English song.

Classic FM
Baritone Mark Stone has it all: a terrific technique, theatrical presence, and a voice guaranteed to tingle bits of your spine never tingled before.
