Notes & Reviews:

The church music of Victorian England has retained a secure foothold in music history. Secular partsongs written during this period were not so lucky. Written to complement the Elizabethan madrigals that were then being rediscovered and performed, this unjustly neglected corner of the English vocal repertoire is revitalized by Rupert Gough and Royal Holloway Choir in these idyllic performances.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2016
Gough pitches the performances exactly right through, allowing the music to speak for itself without undue intervention. Press too hard on these delicate miniatures and they smudge into outright vulgarity, something Gough and his young singers avoid with some impeccably judged interpretations, executed with equal skill.
