Notes & Reviews:

"Safely stowed, another derelict from the Collins English song series comes aboard the well-stocked Naxos vessel, bound, we'll hope, for along and prosperous voyage. It is an excellent selection of Vaughan William's songs, with two major works for weight and in the rest nothing one would care to see adrift and lost." - John Steane, Gramophone
