Notes and Editorial Reviews

Recorded in the music room of Parry’s boyhood home– Highnam Court in Gloucestershire – this disc sees three of our finest singers shed an illuminating light on an area of the repertoire that has rarely graced the concert hall in recent times. As English song came into full flower at the turn of the twentieth century, Parry's substantial contribution to the genre became somewhat buried. Iain Burnside and his singers rediscover what has been forgotten by historical accident, and what a treasure chest of song they have found! Combining an innately English sensibility with a technical fastidiousness that owes much to the lieder of Brahms, Schumann and Wolf, every one of these songs demonstrates Parry’s fundamental concern for sincerity and Read more proper declamation of the words. Still best known for two short choral works, Hubert Parry is at last undergoing something of a revival, and these beautifully articulated performances return his songs to the heart of his output, where the composer always felt they belonged.

"The emotional range of these songs, almost faultlessly conceived in terms of textual rhythm, reminds us of just how expert a song-writer and pioneer of the English art Parry was. Full of subtle vocal nuance, excellent diction and discerning accompaniment, the performances are exquisite." -- Gramophone
