Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

'Enchanting, heartwarming' (Fanfare, USA)

'This sparkling recording makes it clear that 'Hugh the Drover' is a work that deserves to be staged professionally at regular intervals. In any other country it would have been. A magical account of a fascinating work, and not to be missed' (Ivor Gurney Society Journal)

'Yet another gem in Hyperion's bejewelled catalogue' (Soundscapes)

'For sheer tunefulness it is hard to resist... an impressive achievement... A set which deserves to win many new friends for this absudly little-known score' (The Independent)

'A superb interpreter... his lively, loving approach revealing an inherent toughness that lifts the score right out of the category of the rural picturesque' (Opera Now)
