Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Songs of Farewell abounds in subtleties of phrasing and telling distinctions of dynamic, yet flows beautifully, the textual narrative unfolding with a rare continuity and coherence … Huge credit is due to Nigel Short. Of this programme's type, I can't envisage hearing anything better."
BBC Music Magazine – Choral and Song Choice, November 2011
Performance & Recording *****

"performed with Tenebrae’s customary poise."
The Financial Times

"Precision, spot-on intonation and sensitive phrasing inform Tenebrae's affectionate performances of these settings of great English poets, the texts of which are provided in the classily produced booklet."
