Notes & Reviews:

This survey of music for baritone and orchestra includes songs written between 1903 and 1935, and includes a duet - featuring soprano Ailish Tynan - from Parry's opera Guenever, which dates from 1886. Works by composers such as Bax, Boughton and Bainton are heard and, in Boughton's case, we are treated to three songs from his early Kipling settings 'Songs of the English'. These and many other delights are on offer, and the combined forces of Roderick Williams and the BBC Concert Orchestra under Martin Yates give impassioned performances of these glorious works.

Gramophone Magazine
Roderick Williams is, as ever, admirable in the quality of his tone, the clarity of his diction and the cleanness of his style. The well arranged orchestral accompaniments are sympathetically conducted and carefully played.

BBC Music Magazine
Roderick Williams is his usual mellifluous self, but these baritone songs, often orchestrated by other hands, are a very mixed bag...
