Notes & Reviews:

Arthur Bliss wrote in his biography, 'To us musicians in Cambridge Vaughan Williams was the magical name; his 'Songs of Travel' were on all pianos'. Vaughan Williams' songs reflect a significant advance from the parlor song to the art song. They were conceived in the tradition of the early Romantic questing song cycle of love and loss, and are beautifully infused with the composer's hallmark folksong influences and modal harmonies.

'Christopher Maltman at all times sings beautifully, capturing the emotions behind the words and music, and is ably accompanied by Roger Vignoles. As is their custom, Hyperion completes this superior production with intelligent annotation and complete texts' (American Record Guide)
