Notes & Reviews:

"What a perceptive and versatile recitalist Ann Murray is to each group of songs Murray brought a perfectly judged sense of style and delivery. Just as on the operatic stage, she knows exactly how to communicate with an audience and what to tell them." - The Guardian

Gramophone Magazine
Ann Murray eagerly explores the varied moods of A Charm of Lullabies, paying due attention to the composer's masterly settings of an eclectic choice of verse. In Frauenliebe und -leben Murray enters into the mood of each of these wonderful evocations of true love... In the final, tragic song... she is truly moving - as is Martineau in the postlude.
