Notes & Reviews:

As in his Symphonies and large-scale choral works, the musical essence of Vaughan Williams can be heard in his songs, which demonstrate a peerless sensitivity to the English language. This disc, which is the 14th volume in The English Song Series on Naxos, features Songs of Travel, which has been referred to as the English Winterreise.
