Notes & Reviews:

This release from Albion Records highlights both Vaughan Williams’s skill in setting English poetry and prose to music and his abiding love of the violin, which he described as his "musical salvation." It features song settings of both John Bunyan and Robert Louis Stevenson performed by baritone Roland Wood alongside familiar and less well-known works for violin, arranged on this occasion for violin and piano and played by Matthew Trusler and Iain Burnside.
