Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Although the British composer Liza Lehmann had begun her career as a singer, damage to her vocal cords forced her to concentrate on composition. This collection from her extensive song output includes poems from Stevenson's 'A Child's Garden of Verses', once familiar in every nursery; her delightful mock-serious setting of Hilarie Belloc's 'Cautionary Tales' and two 'Nonsense Songs' from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland'.
