Notes and Editorial 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) '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.
