Notes & Reviews:

"Many of these songs show Holst's unique, strangely rarified imagination working at full power. Not only does he write with such lucid sensitivity for both voice and piano, but there are times when these miniatures approach the visionary intensity and originality of the 'Hymn of Jesus' or 'Egdon Heath'. The performances are outstanding and everything is exquisitely recorded. Strongly Recommended" ***** - Stephen Johnson, BBC
