Notes and Editorial Reviews

Alfred Deller's two most famous LPs now remastered from the original master tapes and released onto one single disc. The master of the folksong tradition.

'Wonderfully fresh and immediate in sound, with no ambience that spoils the feeling of having the singer almost at one's side... intimate and natural, sympathetic without being reverberant... all with a taste for early music, so much of which was being rediscovered at that time. And it was a good time: not so knowledgeable and experienced as the present, but more spontaneous, less doctrinaire in style.' -- John Steane, Gramophone
