Notes and Editorial Reviews

This lovely album has links to two ongoing but unnamed 'series' from Metier Records: new British music of traditional, lyrical and Romantic nature, and the city of Manchester, hotbed of talent in all areas of new music from the lyrical to the extreme avant-garde. We present three substantial song cycles, which from their titles can be seen clearly inspired by Nature; folk song arrangements, and two non-vocal items: a cello solo and a recorder concerto. Internationally acclaimed tenor James Gilchrist is perfect for these songs and the instrumentalists are drawn from Northern England's finest.
