Notes & Reviews:

"Geraldine McGreevy has one of the most lovely soprano voices of our younger generation, and in songs such as 'Silver, In the Highlands' and the Clifford Bax setting - 'Neglected Moon!', 'The Rejected Lover', and 'Arrogant Poppies' - she is ideal. Gibbs wrote expertly for the piano, and the expert hands of Roger Vignoles do him full justice." - John Steane, Gramophone

'Most of these songs I had not heard before, nor, I suspect, have most listeners. Hyperion must be thanked for making them available' (International Record Review)

'Songs which gain in stature through being presented in sequence and superbly done' (Gramophone)

'lyrical, imaginative... Geraldine McGreevy's soprano voice is sweet and pure' (Classic FM Magazine)

'two superb voices alive to Gibbs's many moods, while Roger Vignoles accompaniments are a model of sensitivity and understanding' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Geraldine McGreevy and Stephen Varcoe are persuasive advocates... Roger Vignoles is the ideal accompanist, adding to the atmosphere of each song' (The Guardian)

'Stephen Varcoe sings with typical sensitivity... Roger Vignoles offers shapely, perfectly-scaled accompaniments' (Yorkshire Post)

'ces mélodies sont exquises sans être précieuses. La sensibilité est fine, l'expression nuancée mais sans artifice' (Monde de La Musique, France)
